A continuation of SII
so is this when the exonerating evidence will be presented as well?
Not "new" evidence -- unless it goes in under the heading of Ineffective Assistance of Counsel -- that is, Defense was negligent in discovering easily discoverable evidence. Otherwise new evidence is presented in the habeas appeal. The CA Supreme Court appeal deals only with what happened at the trial -- judicial errors, juror misconduct, prosecutorial misconduct,and ineffective assistance of counsel. If I understand correctly, if this appeal to the CA SC does not result in a new trial, then the habeas appeal will follow in a few years. It's a very time-consuming process.
