Justice delayed is better than justice denied, even when delayed for three decades

Dec 16, 2009 Justice delayed is better than justice denied, even when delayed for three decades

Congratulations to Donald Gates for finally being released from decades in prison over a murder he did not commit.

Thank you to former D.C. Superior Court Fred Ugast — who presided over Mr. Gates’s trial — for granting this release, and for urging an investigation into other innocent people who might have been convicted on the basis of false testimony from the same FBI hair analyst who got Mr. Gates convicted.

Thanks and congratulations to Mr. Gates’s legal team for achieving this victory.
