Good News for Harold Fish

From The Arizona Capitol Times related to recently signed SB 1449 & Harold Fish:

. . . His conviction was reversed and it was ordered that he receive a new trial. But, the Attorney General’s Office intends to appeal the decision to the Arizona Supreme Court, according to Kent Cattani, the chief of criminal appeals.

However, if that appeal is unsuccessful, Coconino County Attorney David Rozema announced on July 16 that his office will not retry Fish for murder. He cited a limited amount of physical evidence and the lack of a witness to the shooting.

The prosecutor also said the appeal likely will take months to conclude, and, in the meantime, Fish will be released from prison.
