Statement from the Legal Team of William E. Kuenzel

We are disappointed that the Alabama Supreme Court declined to hear this important case and we will present Mr. Kuenzel’s claims to the U.S. Supreme Court for relief. An innocent man’s life is at stake and there is no dispute that he did not receive a fair trial. A purported ‘procedural default’ should not bar review of proceedings’ constitutionality when a life hangs in the balance, and we remain confident that justice will, in the end, carry the day.
