An Expendable Man

How is it possible for an innocent man to come within nine days of execution? In An Expendable Man: The Near-Execution of Earl Washington Jr. (NYU Press, 2003), Margaret answered the question. Earl Washington was freed after 18 years in Virginia prisons—9 ½ of them on death row—not because of the legal and judicial systems, but in spite of them.
