Death Row Man Set Free

After spending nearly 30 years on death row for a crime he did not commit, Glenn Ford, 64, finally walks away a free man. Ford, Louisiana’s longest-serving death row prisoner, was convicted and sentenced to death in 1984 for the killing of jeweler, Isadore Rozeman.

New information corroborated Ford’s story from 1983 insisting he was not present and had nothing to do with the crime. His attorney’s argued that inexperienced counsel and an unconstitutional suppression of evidence led to his conviction.

Ford tells reporters that when he went to prison his sons were babies and now they have babies. One reporter asked Ford if he holds any resentment and Ford responded, “ Yeah, because I was locked up almost 30 years for something I didn’t do.”

I can’t imagine how this man must feel, losing all that time with his sons and family because he was wrongly convicted. I hope he finds peace and is able to enjoy the rest of his time on earth with the people he loves most.

NJ Judge Rules That Pregnant Women Can Ban Child’s Father From Delivery Room

The first ruling of its kind in the nation, last week a New Jersey judge ruled that mother’s can decide that they do not want the child’s father in the delivery room.

According to nj.com the judge is cited as saying, “Any interest a father has before the child’s birth is subordinate to the mother’s interests,” Mohammed wrote. “Even when there is no doubt that a father has shown deep and proper concern and interest in the growth and development of the fetus, the mother is the one who must carry it to term.”

The decision is the result of a court battle that played out last year in New Jersey’s Passaic county when a once engaged couple broke things off and the mother did not want the child’s father in the delivery room during childbirth. The court hearing actually took place the same day that the mother, Rebecca DeLuccia, went into labor.  The judge ruled in her favor that day, November 19th, but the written decision was just released last week.

 BMWK Family, should expectant mothers be able to keep fathers out of the delivery room?
