Hanging with AG Cooper

Posted By on Thu, Jan 24, 2008 at 4:10 PM

A heads up to Tennessee Attorney General Robert Cooper: You might want to consider using the rear entrance at work tomorrow. Protestors are planning an 11:30 a.m. rally outside Cooper’s downtown office in response to his latest appeal in the case of Paul House, who remains on death row despite exonerating DNA evidence and the U.S. Supreme Court’s determination that he’s likely innocent. A story in this week’s Scene delves into the latest development in the capital case and what it could mean for 46-year-old House, who is suffering from advanced multiple sclerosis. Speakers at tomorrow’s event (sponsored by the Tennessee Coalition to Abolish State Killing) will include the inmate’s mother, Joyce House, Rep. Mike Turner, a Democrat from Old Hickory who believes House is innocent, as well as a few local musicians. The group will gather in front of the John Sevier Building at 425 5th Avenue North.
