Miller: Obama should get involved in Troy Davis case; state law being ignored

By Robert "Rob" Redding Jr.

Editor & Publisher

ATLANTA, Sept. 20, 2011, 9:30 p.m. - Attorney Roy Miller wants President Obama to get involved in the Troy Davis case, which he says can be resolved through a state perjury law.

There is a section of Georgia code that prohibits perjury and a required hearing on that law that was not given to Davis, Attorney Roy Miller told a broadcast of Redding News Review. State code O.C.G.A. 17-1-4 stipulates that anytime there is perjury that there should be a hearing and that the verdict should be vacated.

Davis is scheduled to die in the state's electric chair on Wednesday. Seven witnesses have admitted to perjuring themselves, which resulted in Davis' much protested conviction.

Miller says he wants the president to get involved in the case, like he got involved in the Henry Lewis Gates case. That case resulted in the so called Beer Summit.
