BeschreibungHow is it possible for an innocent man to come within nine days of execution? "An Expendable Man" answers that question through detailed analysis of the case of Earl Washington Jr., a mentally retarded, black farm hand who was convicted of a rape and murder he did not commit.
PortraitAs a reporter and now editorial writer for the Virginian-Pilot, the state's largest paper, Margaret Edds interviewed Earl Washington extensively and worked closely with his attorneys and all the principles of the case. She is the author of Free at Last and Claiming the Dream.
