OTHERWISE: Louisiana Prosecutor Stroud's apology to Glenn Ford.
“Glenn Ford deserves every penny owed to him under the compensation statute. This case is another example of the arbitrariness of the death penalty. I now realize, all too painfully, that as a young 33-year-old prosecutor, I was not capable of making a decision that could have led to the killing of another human being.”
Video of statement by Marty Stroud, II, prosecutor of Glenn Ford, who was convicted of capital murder and later exonerated. “I believe my failure in that case was that I should have done more…Ford was represented by two men who had never tried a jury case.”
