Court Upholds Ga. Cop Killer's Death Sentence

September 20, 2012  | 

A convicted Georgia cop killer remains on death row, after a federal appeals court rejected his argument that he had ineffective counsel, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta, in a 2-1 decision issued Sept. 13, agreed that Robert Wayne Holsey's lawyers didn't do a competent job, but their performance didn't affect the outcome of the trial.

Holsey fatally shot Baldwin County (Ga.) Sheriff's deputy Will Robinson during a traffic stop after an armed robbery at a convenience store in December 1995. Holsey was convicted in 1997 and sentenced to death.

Holsey's lead attorney, Andrew Prince, drank a quart of vodka every day during trial.

While yet I am sorry for Will's death, a great officer killed in the line of duty, I believe there is another person who should be looked at. His sister made a comment a few years ago about having killed someone and had someone else setup to take the blame and was sitting on death row. Holsey was not the only one in the car there was two others in the car when the incident took place, and he was caught a couple days laughter not 3 hours.
