WHO said there's this guy in Mississippi named Curtis Flowers. He's been tried six times for the same crime said the evidence against him if he but he didn't have a chance. And that was pretty much it. At first I was like this isn't possible six trials like no there's no way that someone who's been tried six times then we found out. No, it's true. And then I think a pretty short time after that I wrote you a letter. And I don't know do you remember getting the? Math and I remember. Talking with one attorneys at the time is it okay to write back? Well I don't think you should at this time. Because you know you don't, you don't want them to get where if you write Mallon, she could get subpoenaed. You know or Jewish charter have the letter taken and flip it into something that is not. So I was curious not to do it at the time, but I'll always got to learn and I kept. Let's talk to my mom about you. I tell you hello. Yes Until I think if things she's doing. Had People got in your hopes up in some ways before like had a reporter written to you before. No. Okay. And so. Did.

You know like I wonder about you know when you're reading and the witnesses who said, they saw you walking around town that morning now telling us. That some of them that that story is not true. You're sitting in your cell reading that and what would you? Say to myself. How about you know what? I was happy they did. You know I'll see you would see someone finally admitted. That testimony was false. Yes. I gave it six times in six different trials and you'd think like come on why couldn't you in I remember reading Something some guy can't remember his name said I was only saying what they want me to say so they leave me alone. It was. Depressing, sometime to read things like that. But. I was happy that they did. Come through. And I think. The more things I heard about you guys and and you know the episode they come out it it bright Monday, you know. In in I'm telling to he all the stuff that was going on, you know and and people can stories and stuff like that. You know and. And I know what took Solo? But. It really made me feel good to have you guys investigating this. And so when you're reading these transcripts, do you remember there like a couple of moments that stood out to you in particular things we found out or? I think the biggest thing that really stood out to me right away is when I saw. That odeal. I had turned against Doug Evans told the truth. Tell. Keels people here now. Are. Even get in touch with him. This going through my head. Now. Yeah. yeah. Because because he'd stuck by that. You knew it wasn't true.

To, take like Oh deal and just get whatever he wanted from him. And I hear that. He recanted historian. I just couldn't believe it. I just couldn't believe. So when you're sitting in there on your cell and you're reading this. Do you call someone or not what is. Angeles courtesy sisters. And we're just know things are going good I hear.

"To Bloomberg Law with Joon Grosso from Bloomberg Radio. After finding from death row for decades, Curtis Flower will not be tried for 1/7 time for a quadruple murder in 1996. After the long legal road that went to the Supreme Court, state prosecutors decided to dismiss the charges against flowers. Joining me is Jordan Reuben Bloomberg Law editor. You didn't tell us about the six trials that flowers had Well, the name thing that was pointed out in the Supreme Court. Eventual decision in Curtis Flowers favors that there was a pattern by the local district attorney, Doug Evans, of trying to keep perspective black jurors off of the jury. That was a pattern that had emerged over the years and all of those trials. The prosecutor decide to drop the charges, was it because of the Supreme Court case? I think it's certainly wass. Now. It's important to note that after the Supreme Court's decision last year, the case was remanded back to that same district attorney Doug Evan. And the prospect of 1/7 trial looms even then, because all the Supreme Court's decision did was really the indictment back alive as it were in with Curtis Flowers facing another potential trial, But what happened was Doug Evans actually recused from the case. And then it went to the new state's attorney general, and Fitch, whose office undertook an independent review of the case, after which Bitches office decided to move to dismiss the invite mint. And that was that. So why did Fitch think that the case shouldn't be tried again. One of the things that the attorney general pointed out in the motion was that at least at this point in time, there's no what they referred to as any. He prosecution witness that incriminates flowers who's alive and available and hasn't had multiple conflicting statements in the records. So it wasn't So much a direct exoneration of flowers, who I should point out, has maintained his innocent throughout this process, but in some respect that was put more in terms of we just don't have enough evidence to go forward. Although the attorney general's motion concluded by saying, using the phrase quote in the interest of justice and quote that it was, that's why they weren't speaking an unprecedented At trial of Mr Flowers as they put it during the six trials, jury's were either hung or flowers was convicted, right? That's right. So it really was over the course of two decades, a series of really UN remarkable I should say that again, nearly over the course of decades, theories of a remarkable numbers of trials really an unprecedented situation and really notable how there was continued what essentially been found to then misconduct by the prosecutor in the case, most notably in terms of racial discrimination in the jury process. Explain the racial discrimination in the jury process a little Joy, so to make a long story short Lawyers can't discriminate against potential jurors based on race and now that doesn't mean that there are racial disparities. Injuries that wind up being essentially legally okayed by courts because sometimes what can happen is a prosecutor say if they're challenged and accused of being racially discriminatory and how they choose yours they can offer. What's called a race neutral reason for doing so, however, essentially, what happened in the Supreme Court case is that B justices took a look at this pattern of Evans over the years and said that whatever reasons were given those really just aren't good enough, and this is to racially discriminatory bear under the Constitution. How much of this might be the result of the national attention that flowers got after eight PM reports investigative podcast in the dark. Oh, I think that that was huge. And it's really a testament to the investigatory journalism in that a PM reports podcast because that's really what put the case on the map. Of course, you know, you never know what will happen in a counter factual scenario. But I'm pretty confident and saying that that's a big reason for why Flowers is in the situation that he Now, which is not on death row. So finally did that podcast attempt to exonerate flowers. Um, that's a good question. You know, I think that that is a fair way to look at it and going back to something that I mentioned before that. They also even went so far as to identify a potential alternate and so Really? I think all those things taken together are something that people look at as pointing to why beta mass proof of flowers, innocents and going to the point of it not just important to make sure obviously that an innocent person is not Evicted, but also in a very serious crime. Which everyone agreed. This was a four person Ah, quadruple homicide. You know, you need to be able to bring the right person to justice as well. So the podcast certainly thought to do that. Okay, Jordan, you're going to stay with me coming up. Next. We're going to be talking about your investigative piece. About to film producers who were sentenced to 20 years in prison today for selling synthetic drugs, even though they swear the stuff.

That's because today the supreme court threw out a murder conviction of Kurdish flowers. He had been convicted of killing four people back in nineteen ninety six he was sentenced to death. But now the supreme court says that net throwing it all out. He'd been tried six different times. And now the issue is where blacks kept off the jury in his trout. Take a listen to this report, Chubias news special report. The supreme court has thrown out the conviction of a death row. Inmate in Mississippi. Live to Washington. CBS news correspondent Bill Rakoff. Curtis flowers was on death row for the murder of four people in nineteen Ninety-six, only tried six times in two of those trials. The prosecutor was found to have violated the ban on racial discrimination in picking jurors. Following the six trial flowers challenged the prosecution's rejection of black jurors. But the Mississippi supreme court rejected that challenge the supreme court, then ordered Mississippi supreme court to reconsider the ruling the court reinstated and affirmed flowers convictions and death sentence in today's opinion, written by the courts newest Justice, but cavenaugh says Mississippi court aired in concluding that the prosecutor wasn't motivated by discriminatory intent. Gary, the court ruling was seven to, to the court from confronting racial bias in the American criminal Justice system. CBS news special report, I'm Gary Nunn. Now it's interesting to note when we have this conversation that the supreme court back in nineteen eighty six tried to end discrimination in the composition of juries, but they say it's been harder to root out in day to day traffic. Now the jury that convicted flowers was made up of eleven white jurors, and one African americ-. Juror show. Our conversation is our is the racial makeup of our juries. Do you think it makes a difference? Obviously Curtis flowers thought and made a difference. But what do you think when they say a jury of your peers, what does it mean we're going to open up the phone lines at eight six six three nine one ten twenty and I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. There are some people who would argue that the facts as presented in trial are the facts, and it doesn't matter if you're white or black, you listen to the vaccine, you make a decision. There was a lot of controversy and the trial of Michael Rostow, because, in fact, not only were there, African Americans on the jury the jury foreman was an African American in many people thought that verdict was going to go a different way because of that input that presence. So let's, let's have a conversation. Let's have an open honest conversation about whether or not we should have diversity in our juries when they say. A jury of your peers what does that mean? Does that mean people who look like you'd is that people who are from the same neighborhood as you because the realities are in this case Curtis flowers spent a lot of time behind bars to have that case overturn the district attorney spent a lot of that county's time and money trying to get a conviction trying to keep African Americans off that jury? What do you think about that? When you if you were to meet Curtis flowers, tomorrow, what would your reaction be? Well you still look at him as if he was guilty as as he was convicted. because at this point this case really isn't even about the guilt or the innocence of the person it's about the process it's about the process that put kurdish flowers behind bars this is not now about whether or not curtis flowers is guilty or if he's innocent what this is about why he did not get a fair trial a fair trial what does that mean we're going to open up the phone lines i want you to weigh in on it and then we're going to speak with a local defense attorney criminal defense attorney about this whole thing you know in our area sometimes it's hard to get a diverse jury it is difficult to get african americans on anna jury pool let alone selected for the jury we're going to look inside the legal system how it works what it means and we're going to try to dissect this decision by this court today curtis flowers this goes back to Nineteen Ninety-six just think about that. And again, I'm not saying whether flowers is innocent or guilty. But I do know that his life has been tied up and this process since nineteen Ninety-six when there's four people were killed. And I wonder how the families of those victims now feel. Yeah, I wonder how the families of those victims now feel anyway, phone lines are open..

"Reward or Sutri. Curtis flowers next trial. The third one down home took the stand and Odell told the jurors something remarkable he said that Curtis flowers had told him directly that he killed the people at tardy furniture. The Curtis had confessed to him. In the years since then Odell Haman has become Doug Evans star witness. He's testified for the state at four trials. Never wavering. Always telling the jurors that Curtis confessed to him. This practice of using jailhouse informants is pretty routine so routine that there are established rules. The prosecutors have to follow when using these kinds of witnesses. If the case goes to trial, a prosecutor is required to disclose anything given or promised to the informant in exchange for their statement, like any generous plea deals or dropped charges. Any leniency at all the Doug Evans in his office. Have always said that Odell Hallman didn't get a thing. I decided to find out whether that was true. One day last October. I drove out with my coworkers Parker. Yes. Go and Natalie job Lonski to an empty old jail in the town of Carrollton Mississippi. Okay. Okay. The old jail. I was trying to find out what had happened back in two thousand one. We know Dell Haman I gave a statement to Doug Evans investigator. I wanted to find out if Odell had been facing any criminal charges at the time, and whether he might have gotten anything in exchange for helping the prosecution, I was at the Seoul jail because that's where Carroll county stores some of its criminal records. Is there any electricity in here at all in this building? I don't think so walks through the jail with flashlights. We noticed some drawers lying out in the hallway each one was crammed full of booking cards for the jail. Okay. We're looking for. Del Harris terrorists. There is.
