I was jolted by the Bonner article in the Nov. 22 Register. If the facts are correct they support his innocence rather than his guilt. Stowers, who admitted his guilt, got three years, but Bonner, who Stowers testified was not even there, may get life.
The all white jury seemed to rely only on eyewitness testimony which is notoriously unreliable, especially when members of one race identify a member of another race. And how can you positively identify someone whose face is covered?
This unwarranted sentece may be small potatoes to the prosecutor, judge and jury but it ends all this young man has.
I hope an innocence project takes up this case. It smacks of injustice.
