The Fight for Justice
Tatyana Ali supports the cause to get a new trial for Troy Davis, who has been on death row for 18 years for a crime he quite possibly did not commit. Taylor was convicted on eyewitness testimony alone—no physical evidence—and now seven of those nine eyewitnesses have recanted their testimony, stating they were either coerced or just said he did it so the cops would leave them alone. One of the two witnesses who have not recanted is believed to be the one who actually committed the murder.
Chris Brown arrives to the Criminal Courts Building for a preliminary hearing. The R&B artist accepted a plea deal, essentially ending the long saga stemming from his fight with former girlfriend Rihanna.
