In a case that is garnering a lot of attention in Pennsylvania, Terrance “Terry” Williams is scheduled to die October 3rd for the death of Amos Norwood, whom Williams alleges sexually assaulted him.
A judge, however, has asked for a hearing to be held so he can hear testimony about how the prosecutors withheld the fact that Norwood had allegedly violently raped Williams the night before. Norwood has also been accused of touching many other young boys in the church where he was employed.
Five jurors have stepped forward to say that they would have handed down a life in prison sentence had they had all the evidence.
If Williams is put to death on October 3rd, he will be the first person to be non-voluntarily put to death in Pennsylvania in 50 years (that is to say, the first death row convict to be put to death who has appealed his sentence.)
What do you think of this case? Should Terry Williams be held to his original sentence for the grisly crime? If not, should any punishment be handed down to the prosecutor in the original trial?
