Georgia Execution Involves Racially Biased and Unprepared Defense Lawyer

On June 4, Georgia executed Curtis Osborne. Osborne’s defense lawyer at trial was racially biased against him and failed to do the most basic investigation that might have saved his client’s life. The attorney repeatedly referred to Osborne with a racial epithet, saying, “that little n____r deserves the chair.” At the time of the murder that sent Osborne to death row, he was suffering from mental problems and his family had a history of mental illness going back for 3 generations. However, Osborne’s attorney failed to raise this issue. His story is recounted in a video prepared by his defense attorneys.
