Salon.com has a story about Charles Dean Hood, a man sentenced to death in 1989 for a double murder in Collin County. But,
Unfortunately for Hood, in the 15 years since he arrived on death row, the issue of the strange and not-so-secret relationship of State District Court Judge Verla Sue Holland and Collin County District Attorney Tom O’Connell has never been raised in a single state or federal court.
Was Hood’s trial fair? Was the affair relevant? Was justice served? Discuss.
