George is a man who suffered debilitating brain injuries related to a car accident. He is convicted of murder after an altercation with police that led to the death of an officer. George’s trial lawyers fail to offer any defense. A charlatan psychiatrist testifies that George has no mental impairment, and George is sentenced to death. EJI later wins relief for George after proving that the “psychiatrist” wasn’t a real doctor.
