More on Munchinski

Munchinski attorney Noah Geary and the media crush

The media coverage of David Munchinski's case yesterday reflected the roller-coaster ride of events. In the morning, the AP had Munchinski free and making plans for his release. By early evening, Munchinski was again indefinitely behind bars. The Trib's story suggests Munchinski could be released today, which seems wildly optimistic. The Union-Standard reports the attorney general claims the state constitution prevents the release of a person facing a life sentence.

Bill Moushey's story for the Post-Gazette quotes Munchinski's attorney, Noah Geary, as saying his client is "a very patient man." You'd kind of have to be after 18 years behind bars for a crime you claim you didn't commit.
