Ian Carleton achieves ground-breaking ruling

Congratulations to Attorney Carleton for his dedication and persistence in the matter of State v. John Grega.  On August 21, 2013, a judge overturned the 1995 murder conviction and life-without-parole sentence for John Grega based on exculpatory DNA evidence.  John Grega was convicted of raping and murdering his wife while on vacation in Vermont.  John Grega spent 18 years of his life in prison before being released.  Dan Richardson, a private practice attorney who writes a Vermont Supreme Court law blog states “Grega’s case represents the first time a prisoner was released due to a post-conviction DNA test.”
