    The jury who unanimously convicted him, disagreed.

    He is guilty and a convicted killer.

    The NC Supreme Court put the smackdown on the appeal, affirming his conviction.

    He's trying to assert that Judge Collins, who was the chief public defender in 2012 and other defense attorney (Mike K) provided ineffective assistance of counsel. That's his only move left. If that maneuver fails he's toast (unless the US Supreme Court deigns to hear his case, which they won't).

    Yeah and all of Greg Taylor's appeals were denied but after 17 years he was exonerated

    Apples and Potatoes.

    Greg Taylor was factually innocent and had the Innocence Commission fighting his case and they proved factual innocence.

    For 17 years he wasn't according to DA's office and even the lawyers in the Innocence hearings still argued he was guilty

    I'm not even saying he's innocent - I'm saying the timeline that was presented made no sense at all to me. I lived 25-30 minutes closer to Hillsville than he did at the time and I wouldn't have been within 2 hours of their suggested time frame.

    I'm quite sure this e-book offers a different opinion on just about anything proven in court by the state.....

    Glad to hear you are not saying he's innocent.

    2 hours?
    Do you actually know the timeline presented in court?

    Yes, Greg Taylor was factually innocent.

    To suggest JLY is factually innocent would be insane.
    The only thing his defense could possibly do was cast some reasonable doubt.
    In the end, the smoke and mirrors failed with a 12-0 guilty verdict for 1st degree murder.
    The States highest court unanimously agreed.

    Personally, I thought this should have been tried as a capital death case.

    IIRC, the LEOs who went up to the motel in Virginia also took mileage statistics, etc., of their trip, and they observed that it could be done.

    The drive one way was clocked at somewhere around 2 hrs 30 min, give or take, and not just driven once, but more than once. As presented, with mileage and time and gas utilization, it was doable. He would have had up to an hour to commit the murder and get himself back in the SUV.

    Imo, the conditions would have had to be perfect for him to make it in an hour and a half. It was closer to 3 hours for me and I lived 30 minutes closer. The roads are not interstates and they are tricky to drive at night. And he murdered her and cleaned up so well that there was no trace evidence on him or in his car and nothing from the hotel room on her.

    LE rented the exact model SUV as he had and drove it up and back from his house (not speeding like freaks). They did this more than 1 time. This is in testimony. Their clocked times are part of the record, as is their mpg, using the exact same model of vehicle. You don't have to believe it, but it happens to be part of the official record. It certainly was possible and it was proved.

    Cleaned up so well? He got rid of the top, pants, and shoes he was wearing, those items likely in a large hefty bag, fully contained. He managed to leave his own shoe prints in his wife's blood. You don't know if there was any trace evidence on him at some point in time. He didn't leave the house after murdering his wife and then wear any of those items in the SUV. All items disappeared. He ran the hose outside to clean up and left it running. His own DNA is in the house since he lived there. His light colored SUV was spotted around 3:40am-ish at his house.

    The jury weighed the evidence and testimony presented and determined he was guilty. He certainly cut it close--got back later than he planned to and then was 30 min late to his important sales call, the one he had to drive halfway there so he wouldn't be late.

    Doubt the driving times all you want; it doesn't change the evidence or the testimony.

    Seems to me the 'book' is overpriced by about $2.98.

    Even with such a bargain price, I'll pass on this author's POV.
