British Grandma Still on Death Row in Texas

“Linda was forced to accept a local court-appointed lawyer, Jerry Guerinot, whose incompetence has already led to 20 of his clients ending up on death row, more than any other defence lawyer in the US. Guerinot’s catalogue of serious failings in Linda’s case includes:

• Failure to spot obvious flaws and inconsistencies in the prosecution case;

• Failure to spend more than 15 minutes with Linda before the trial;

• Failure to investigate key mitigating evidence;

• Failure to inform Linda, a British citizen, of her right to consular assistance; and

• Failure to inform Linda’s husband of his right not to testify against his wife;

Linda was born on 5 October 1958 on the Caribbean island of St Kitts to Anguillan parents and holds UK dependant nationality. She worked as a primary school teacher in St Kitts until she was 23 years old. Guerinot was awarded funds by the court to carry out investigation there but he never bothered to go.
