Convicted Texas Cop Killer Gets Death Row Reprieve
September 24, 2009
The Associated Press is reporting that the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday night stopped the scheduled execution of Texas death row inmate Kenneth Mosley a day before he was to receive lethal injection for the fatal shooting of a suburban Dallas police officer.
The court agreed to halt the lethal injection until it resolves an Alabama death penalty case that Mosley's attorney said could affect his case.

This has to be some kind of joke. The supreme court put a stay on this screaming P.O.S.'s Death sentence because his attorney didnt do something during the punishment phase? On something has nothing to do with his guilt or innocense? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE? Ehis scumbag should have been euthanized years ago to just do everyone a favor to keep him from polluting the gene pool of the human race. Not to mention the police officer he shot with one of the 5 rounds he said that went off accidently as he was trying to give up. W.T.F. OVER

sounds like a ploy that lawyers use when their client has no chance of a not guilt verdict.
sit back do very little then years later the person has a chance to appeal based on the lack of representation they received at trial.
hold the lawyer responsible, and better yet if the defendant has been found competent to stand trial he can aide in his defense and ensure his council brings up all the necessary facts.
the problem with this is that would allow all or some of the other crimes the defendant has been charged with or convicted of.
in reality judges need to use common sense, would a reasonable person believe that the killing of a police officer during the commission of a crime deserve any less than the death penalty, especially involving a person with a violent documented past.
