    1. You may think the jury’s guilty verdict (on 08-15-2013) has sealed Brian Holliman’s fate, not so fast. Mr. Farese (Holliman’s defense attorney) rested the case without calling any witnesses (notice Mr. Farese stated that not calling any witnesses was strategy). Brian Holliman dosen’t need an attorney to file an appeal and he has a prima facie case for ineffective assistance by defense counsel by his attorney not putting forth a defense.

    2. The weight of evidence in first trial were stacked against Mr. Holliman; in his closing arguments, the states’s attorney made derogatory statements (which had nothing to do with the guilty verdict) toward Mr. Holliman and the trial judge should have instructed the jury to disregard the statements; but no, the trial judge overruled the defenses objections to these statements and Holliman was convicted. On December 1, 2011 Mississippi Supreme Court reversed and remanded Holliman conviction for a new trial (for one reason) because the trial judge allowed those derogatory statements.

    That dirt bag got what he deserved finally! He took away a precious young woman And mothers life. Her kids now her kids now get to grow up without a mother and a father it is sickening that he could do this. What a tragedy this is and I’m am beyond thankful that justice was served except I would rather pay the electric bill for him to have the death penalty then for him to get to LIVE the rest of his life even though poor Laura lee never will get that chance! Forrest Allgood is an amazing man and prosecutor. My heart goes out to her family and my hat off to the DA!! Steve Farese is a snake for even being willing to defend this nutjob.
