On Tuesday, May 3rd, News Channel Three ran a special segment on the recent filing of Cameron’s petition for a writ of habeas corpus. View the segment here: WTKR Exclusive Interview with Cameron Crockett
The segment featured an interview with Cameron’s mother, Gail, as well as snippets from Merris Badcock’s telephone interview with Cameron. Ms. Badcock focused on Cameron’s allegations of ineffective assistance of counsel, especially as those allegations regard the crucial seatbelt evidence that was never provided to the jury due to counsel’s failure to adequately investigate that evidence. Also featured in the report were a number of affidavits from jurors stating that they actually believed that Cameron was innocent, that they were bullied into a guilty verdict, and that they would have voted differently had the seatbelt evidence been made available to them.
This, of course, is but a glimpse into the full extent of Cameron’s petition. We encourage our audience to read the petition, which was posted to the site in our last update.
Since that previous update, Judge James Lewis has issued an order directing the Attorney General’s Office to respond to Cameron’s petition before July 5th. When we spoke with Cameron about this development, he said he was eager to see what positions his opponent will adopt. He added that he has been anticipating what those positions might be for years and is confident he can thwart them.
That is all for now. Stay tuned as we bring you more.
