Finally, freedom for Flowers

Our team had the immense joy of watching Curtis Flowers, an innocent man who was sentenced to death and spent more than two decades in prison for murders he did not commit, take off his ankle monitor and celebrate with friends and family after prosecutors dismissed the charges against him with prejudice.

We began representing Mr. Flowers in 2015 in his post-conviction proceedings. After the U.S. Supreme Court reversed his conviction and death sentence in 2020 based on racial discrimination in his jury selection, we worked with Mr. Flowers' local trial attorneys in Mississippi to prepare to defend him in a seventh trial to persuade the newly elected Mississippi Attorney General to dismiss the case, which she did.
