: Los Angeles district attorney Gil Garcetti announced that he will appeal the reversal of former Black Panthers party leader Geronimo Pratt’s 1972 murder conviction. He said he found no evidence indicating the former Black Panther leader was innocent. Pratt’s conviction was overturned a week ago after new proof that the chief witness against him was a police and FBI informant who lied under oat. Stuart Hanlon who has been Geronimo’s lawyer since 1974 when he was a law student talks about the legal case of Geronimo Pratt and the appeal process. Stuart Hanlon also talks about the visiting conditions in prison.
