Through the first phase of trial, jurors heard again and again about the horrible acts our client had committed. Jurors later reported that after this phase, they were convinced our client should be sentenced to death. The second phase of trial was a chance to share our client’s story with the jury so they could feel the weight of the life they held in their hands. We went back three generations with the jurors to tell this family’s story. History matters, and what happens to one generation informs how the next generation will develop, struggle and thrive.
