THUMBS UP Standing Up For Justice

By D Magazine |

Thumbs up to Assistant District Attorney Leslie McFar lane for standing up to her boss, DA John Vance, by recommending a new trial for Randall Dale Adams. Vance has long opposed the idea of a retrial for Adams, who was convicted of murdering a Dallas police officer in 1977 and was the subject of a popular docudrama called The Thin Blue Line. His main accuser, David Harris, now on death row for an unrelated murder conviction, recanted his testimony against Adams and all but confessed to the crime.
