"Former death row inmate Paul House woke to laughter and cries of joy from his mother on Tuesday, the day he learned he was a free man. "You've been exonerated," his mother, Joyce House, told him, shaking him awake. "Took 'em long enough," he replied, after taking a moment to process the information. House, 47, spent 22 years on Tennessee death row for the rape and murder of his neighbor, Carolyn Muncey, in 1985. He left prison last year and was placed under house arrest after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that new DNA evidence could have led a jury to acquit him." . . . "District Attorney Paul Phillips wrote in his petition this week that he still believes House could have been convicted again in a new trial, "but the new evidence (including the forensic examinations) raises a reasonable doubt that he acted alone and the possibility that others were involved in the crime." http://www.cnn.com/2009/CRIME/05/13/tennessee.exonerated/ Clearly, Phillips is a proud member of the Mike Nifong for President club. He represents a perfect example of yet another prosecutor who operates with a badly tilted scale of justice. There are an incredible number of prosecutors who simply have no shame.
