How to get the help you need to navigate the death of your loved one
By the time the court heard the case, the attorneys had already taken the oath to represent the best interests of the children.
They were still in the middle of the case when the family of four had reached its final destination, where it would have been taken up by a new judge.
The judge, who had previously presided over the case in a closed courtroom, had not yet been sworn in.
As the day wore on, the families lawyers began to gather more information.
What were the parties trying to accomplish in this court?
How were they trying to reach an agreement?
The attorneys began to discuss how to proceed.
The attorney for the state of Idaho, Mark H. Buell, called for a new trial.
“It’s clear the court is going to give us this long trial, and that’s fine,” he said, according to court records.
The attorneys also discussed how the new judge would be more sympathetic to the families, particularly the children, and would allow the children to go to court with the rest of the family, the records say.
“He’ll be more receptive to the children,” Buella said.
At the end of the day, the attorney for Arizona’s Attorney General, Joe D. Hass, called the new court, saying, “This is a bad day for children’s rights in Arizona.”
Hass’s office has been involved in the fight for the children’s right to a fair trial, arguing that the death penalty was unconstitutional and should be eliminated.
Hass said he had been told by his attorneys that the new judges will be sympathetic to children’s interests.
“My advice to the judge: I want him to see the children at this time, and I want this court to do its job,” Hass said.
“And I’m asking him to let the children go home.”
Hass did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press.
The parents, who were each represented by their own attorney, said they were happy with the new trial, but were not satisfied with the results.
“I have been through this before,” said H.M. Williams, whose son was convicted of murdering his mother in 2013.
“The judge has a lot of power over what happens.
I don’t think that’s fair.
But I’m glad it’s over.”
The lawyers also said they would like to have the death sentence vacated.
“We have been waiting for this day,” H. M. Williams said.
The children’s mother, whose name was not released because of her age, was convicted on child abuse and other charges in 2013 for the death.
H. S. Williams was found guilty of second-degree murder in 2017 and sentenced to die.
Her attorney, Michael J. Sullivan, said in a statement that the case should be reopened and the death certificate corrected.
The family of two children, aged 2 and 3, who died after being placed in the care of a foster family said the new hearing in the case was a step in the right direction.
“Today, we finally had the chance to get answers to our questions, and this was a significant step in our journey,” they said in their statement.
The state has appealed the decision to the state supreme court.
A hearing on the new case will be held in April.
