How to Get Life Verdicts
Michael Tigar's Notes:
Excerpt from an interview with Michael Tigar in Austin, Texas on August 1-2, 2016. In this clip, Tigar discusses the rhetoric of legal procedures regarding the death penalty and sentencing proceedings. He makes reference to Terry Nichols, currently serving life in prison for his involvement in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. Tigar served as Nichols’ defense attorney and most likely influenced the judge’s decision to reduce Nichols’ sentence from the death penalty to life in prison.
