http://www.thewmurchannel.com/news/4054643/detail.html Pamela Smart, the key figure in New Hampshire's most publicized murder trial, is asking for a pardon. Smart, 37, was convicted in 1991 of persuading her teenage lover and his friends to murder her husband. Four teens, including one who admitted pulling the trigger, testified against her in a trial that was televised live around the state, and prompted several books and a movie. In a pardon request filed last week with the Attorney General's Office, Smart repeats her arguments that she didn't get a fair trial because of all the media attention and that her sentence was too harsh. Her lawyer, Greg Adamski, compared the case to the recent trial of Scott Peterson, the California man convicted in November of killing his pregnant wife.
