Unfortunate Choice Of Words

The DMN had a front page story today on a motion filed by convicted murderer Michael Blair claiming a new DNA test had exonerated his client in the death of 7-year-old Ashley Estell in 1993. A poor choice of words by his attorney (as the excerpt, above, shows). (For what it is worth, that case had a greater impact on the revision of our criminal laws in Texas than any other case. )
