Supreme Court Stops New Abu-Jamal Hearing

January 19th, 2010


Mumia Abu-Jamal moves closer to execution as the U.S Supreme Court will not allow a new sentencing hearing for his 1982 murder conviction. The Supreme Court made the ruling on Tuesday.

Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner and sentenced to death row , has become a symbol against capital punishment as many in the U.S and throughout the world are not convinced of his guilt.

Abu-Jamal said he is innocent and blames his prosecution on American racism and his affiliation with the Black Panther Party.

In 2008, the Third District US Court of Appeals in Philadelphia ruled that Abu-Jamal is entitled to a new sentencing “because the jury during the trail was confused over how to properly assess mitigating evidence during the penalty phase of the trial,” according to the Christian Science Monitor.

Philadelphia prosecutors appealed the ruling to the Supreme Court who has ordered the appeals court to reexamine the case.
