mandatory life without parole...





i attended my first courtroom assignment today...
"Lamont Marshall was sentenced to mandatory life without parole on Wednesday, for the murder of Laurel Jean Ellis in 1975. A single drop of blood found on a tile near Ellis' body was saved for later examination when DNA testing would be developed. Recent advances in DNA testing linked the drop of blood to Marshall's DNA, and he was convicted, and sentenced. Marshall was also accused of murdering four other women around the same time, all in the Heritage Hill neighborhood of Grand Rapids."

Really good series - I especially like the composition of just the clenched hands - try to do that in my graphic design, not be so blatant, let the viewer's mind engage.
