4:48 pm
i've been down this road with him forever in almost 60 years. and i had to get to. because it was. in the early 2000 biggies of a scotsman called kenneth ricci had been sentenced to death and the states began to attract media attention on both sides of the pond. they have a reporter or they contacted me wanted to talk to me in stock and over to me the anger of court. judges. trying to prosecute. you know it was an issue when the article came out and just went from there it's like you know. more newspapers phone tag to me and then people started writing me. to. the proclaimers. orders for a whole chunk on the very top. you know and when did i go.
4:49 pm
on a stand on national came out. publicly stated. my case was one of the most compelling piece is a power and the essence the human to human rights campaigners. were seen. in 2007 jenny's lawyer schemes in a green. and with the prosecutors. the arson and murder charges swirled plea bargain down to child endangerment. this was enough to secure rich's release considering the amount of time he told what he spends in prison. only one person in the courthouse still believes in 10 his guilt bellary been clear. the victims. have been here. to the north cafe to get through it but i want to tell you all nobody. you will.
4:50 pm

4:52 pm
question how can i get this information from him without him. lying to me i said because you are just so incredibly smart you out smart he goes because they're a bunch of dumb asses like ok. because it was easy because you take a lit cigarette. match it in the book. behind the couch and then i walk down the street 30 minutes later a place goes up in smoke and they can't connect me to the crime. i didn't expect there. was just absolute shock. i am married to satan himself. she's a lawyer just give me. something like. 3 years to come forward with it. let's just. try to make money off. you know.
