Letter: What is the hold-up in cases that are cleared?
With cases that have reached a verdict, why do we often reopen them and demand another trial? The retrial of Antajuan Wilson for the murder of Bryan Adams in the Wilde Lake shopping center comes as a surprise to me. In the original case, Wilson pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison with all but 70 years suspended. This punishment is representative for a crime like this, but the highest Maryland appellate court has since called the original trial back. This request will use more of our taxpayer money and cause further emotional taxes not only on the victim's family, but also on Wilson himself.
