Timothy Tyrone Foster

The Supreme Court ruled in favor of a death row inmate in a case concerning race discrimination in jury selection.

Timothy Tyrone Foster, an African-American, is on death row in Georgia for the 1987 murder of an elderly white woman, Queen Madge White. The jury that convicted him was all white. Twenty years after his sentence, his attorneys obtained notes the prosecution team took while it was engaged in picking a jury.

Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the 7-1 decision. Justice Clarence Thomas was the dissenter. Ref. CNN

While the selection process did not have blind justice behind it if he did the crime he should still do the time. I would hate for a criminal who committed a terrible act to go free just because of a technicality.
