Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said Wednesday his office would no longer oppose a bid by imprisoned former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal to reargue his case. The move paves the way for Abu-Jamal to get a new hearing to appeal his 1981 conviction for the murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. Mumia Abu-Jamal is an award-winning journalist who spent nearly three decades on death row; he remains in a Pennsylvania prison serving a sentence of life without parole.
