About this product
- DescriptionThe Wrong Man is the dramatic story of Michael Mello's twenty-year-long fight to save Spazia from being executed for crimes he didn't commit. In a gripping personal account Mello, a well-kwn author, activist, and legal commentator, describes the ins and outs of this case and the extremes to which he was driven by it. In his desperation to halt this miscarriage of justice, Mello broke ethical and procedural rules, faced possible contempt charges and disbarment proceedings, and gave up hope of ever practicing law in Florida again. Among his unconventional measures was to involve the Miami Herald, which eventually published an investigative piece exposing the fundamental unfairness of Spazia's sentence, an article that was instrumental in turning the tide of public opinion and bringing the case to the attention of the national media.More than an account of a single, torious death penalty case, The Wrong Man is an indictment of capital punishment and the criminal justice system -- a fascinating first-person narrative about death penalty legal work and a detailed account of how the justice system often fails to deliver justice. Ultimately Mello offers compelling proof of the following sad reality: wrongful convictions can easily occur, and incent people are sentenced to death and executed in America.
