Man Accused of Killing Wife asks Utah Supreme Court to Review Judges Refusal to Lower Bail
September 14th 2016
Attorneys for an Orem man, who will face trial for the second time in the 2012 shooting death of his wife, have asked the Utah Supreme Court to decide if a judge erred by refusing to lower his bail.
Courts • Attorneys argue that high amount essentially denies bail.
"The fundamental liberty interest at issue here is of such importance, that Utah's highest court should determine the issue," the attorneys wrote. "Despite the stereotype that popular culture would have us believe, claims of actual innocence are rare. Cases in which factual innocence is actually demonstrated are even less common. Truman's case, however, is one of those instances where the facts and physical evidence establishes innocence."
