Lock Up Your Daughters!

Posted By on Wed, Jul 2, 2008 at 10:36 AM

This is a rather belated act of justice. Two years after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Paul House was "likely innocent" of killing Carolyn Muncey, the former death row inmate will be released from the Lois DeBerry Special Needs prison facility in Nashville this morning. Even so, Paul Phillips, the backwoods prosecutor whose entire theory of the case has been gutted by DNA evidence, could not resist a parting shot. With characteristically impeccable logic, Phillips has restricted House from leaving his home for any reason except doctor’s appointments. Why? Phillips evidently considers House a flight risk—even though he is wheelchair-bound, broke and suffering from multiple sclerosis. Check out the Scene’s extensive coverage of the whole saga, most recently former staff writer Sarah Kelley’s superb cover story from last week.
