N.J.'s high court rejects rap lyrics as evidence in attempted murder trial

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 03:38
The New Jersey Supreme Court on Monday ordered a new trial for a man whose attempted murder conviction was challenged because prosecutors used rap lyrics the man had authored as evidence against him. Vonte Skinner was convicted in 2008 of shooting and paralyzing Lamont Peterson, a fellow drug crew member, in a 2005 dispute over guns and money in Willingboro, New Jersey. At his trial, prosecutors introduced 13 pages of violent rap lyrics Skinner had written as evidence against him. “One would not presume that Bob Marley, who wrote the well-known song 'I Shot the Sheriff,' actually shot a sheriff, or that Edgar Allan Poe buried a man beneath his floorboards, as depicted in his short story 'The Tell-Tale Heart,' simply because of their respective artistic endeavors on those subjects," wrote Justice Jaynee LaVecchia in the court's unanimous opinion.

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 03:29

Courtroom sketch of military trial in Guantanamo Bay of al-NashiriBy Lacey Johnson FORT MEADE Md. (Reuters) - A military judge refused on Monday to recuse himself from the death penalty case of a Guantanamo Bay prisoner accused of organizing the 2000 bombing of the U.S. warship Cole. The decision was in response to one of several pre-trial motions in the case against Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, a Saudi Arabian national of Yemeni descent. Defense attorney Richard Kammen argued that the newly appointed judge, Air Force Colonel Vance Spath, could be biased because a member of the defense team was working to appeal a separate death penalty sentence that Spath oversaw in 2005. “Our concern is none of us are as good at compartmentalizing as we think we are,” said Kammen, who questioned Spath for more than two hours about his knowledge of Islam, opinions on the death penalty and career history.
