Media on Paul House Hearing

As expected, there has been a significant amount of media reaction to yesterday's hearing.

Kerry Haymaker , a criminal defense attorney, said the court rulings soften the prosecution.
"Their case becomes very, very weak," he said. "It sounds like the evidence in the case will be under greater attack now than way back then … especially after the Circuit Court's ruling. But more importantly, it's a waste of resources and a waste of taxpayers' money."

"If the state does everything they say they're going to do, I would consider that to be in substantial compliance," the judge said. "Is it not draconian … to release someone who the state contends committed murder? Is it just?"

"Why is it draconian?" Kissinger responded. "The state was given 180 days - six months - to retry Mr. House."
