After Michael Scott’s hearing today, I spoke briefly to his wife, Jeannine

I introduced myself to Jeannine Scott in court today and later got up my courage to ask her if I could talk to her for a minute after today’s hearing.

We sat outside the courthouse—she was waiting for the right time to go into the jail to retrieve her husband’s court-appearance clothes--and discussed the fact that she can’t really discuss her husband’s case and doesn’t always know what’s really going on anyway: we both wondered what the deal was today with all the in-chambers discussions. If she knew why Dr. Gahn from Identigene was there today to participate in the in-chambers discussions, she did not let on.

One thing Jeannine was comfortable discussing was her passionate anti-death-penalty advocacy activity, especially with the Campaign to End the Death Penalty, whose next meeting (part of a national speaking tour) is April 9th at 7 p.m. in the Chicano Culture Room, 4.206, of The Texas Union at UT.
