If a new trial had been granted, would the state even be able to submit a case against Baldwin? In looking for Arkansas law on polygraphs, I cam across this case. http://ar.findacase.com/research/wfrmDocViewer.aspx/xq/fac.19861215_0043379.AR.htm/qx It got me to thinking, if a new trial was granted, what corroborating evidence is there connecting Baldwin to the murders? Carson? No. What else is there? This case shows how invaluable the softball girls were to the state's case against Echols and might also explain why the state made the crazy assertion that Domini isn't Domini, but rather Domini is Jason. Even if you believe every single word of Jessie's so-called "confession", the state could not even submit a case against Jason at this point unless I'm missing something. No wonder he held out as long as he did before accepting the Alford Plea.
