August 30 @ 7:30 pm
Stone Grissom, anchor for News 12 and author, will be joining us to read from, discuss and sign copies of A Cry for Justice. Samoan gang members, fired a fatal shot into the car of an innocent teenager. Tyler Tutuila confessed to police, but changed his story at the last minute. The gun disappeared, the jury was confused — it was enough for reasonable doubt. The acquittal gained national attention, and rocked the prosecutor’s office to its core. Susan Mustafa, co-author of The New York Times bestseller The Most Dangerous Animal of All—Searching for My Father and Finding the Zodiac Killer, says this about A Cry For Justice: “… Stone Grissom’s knowledge of the legal system shines … a must-read for anyone who enjoys lots of twists and turns…” Stone Grissom is an Edward R.
