S2-EP37: In the Interest of Justice - Motion Granted!

On September 8, 2021, the Honorable Ramon Escapa, in the Eleventh Judicial Circuit County of McLean County, ruled in favor of Jamie Snow, for the first time in 22 years. Jamie’s lawyers from the Exonoration Project argued fervently, that the contents of 8000 missing discovery documents would weigh heavily upon his proof of innocence, and that by law, his defense is entitled to them. Judge Escapa presented a four prong litmus test to determine if he should grant the motion, including the scope of the request, length of time since conviction, the burden on the state, and availability of the documents from other sources. He issued a fair and just ruling with Jamie’s family and supporters present. Listen in to hear how this is the beginning of the end for Jamie’s wrongful conviction and incarceration.
