Barry Beach to Get New Trial

by jhwgirl

Pretty big deal. Montana’s Supreme Court remanded Beach’s case back to court to assess potential new evidence. The court ruling came unanimously.

As Great Falls Tribune Helena bureau reporter John S. Adams points out, Beach has consistently maintained his innocence, despite his confession which is says was coerced.

He’s also been the subject of numerous justice projects and media stories focused around his self-professed innocence.

The Trib story promises more tomorrow. I imagine this is going to create quite a media stir, given the attention the case has already had over the years.

    This is a big deal. Thanks for the update. See the Montana Innocence Project to learn more about to get involved with similar cases:

    Can’t wait to learn more about Barry’s case!

    This is huge good news.
    If justice has not been served, and has not been blind, it’s time (way past time) for a re-examination.

    P.S. Many thanks to the Montanans for Justice
    who have worked so hard for so long on this case.

    Since I viewed Barry’s story on Dateline, I have been convinced of his innocence.

    I believe the hardest thing is for anyone to admit they were wrong. The justice system is sooooo wrong and everyone who had anything to do with putting Barry in prison is wrong. I hope and pray when he is found Not Guilty he will get an apology from all of the people who put him in prison. God Bless Barry. We will keep praying for you! Anna Anghioiu Los Angeles
