And unfortunately what happened in this case is all of those things." Ouch!)
One thing that occurred to me this morning reviewing the coverage: It took a federal appellate court to overturn this conviction and order a new trial (see their order here) based on the extreme prosecutorial misconduct that's being alleged. Texas state appellate courts had already rubber-stamped Graves' death papers and would have sent him to the execution chamber by now, if they had their way.
