Pamela Smart Speaks Out
Pamela deserves a new trial, Linda says, because the judge should have put more safeguards in place.
"There were 1,200 newspaper articles screaming her guilt, calling her the 'Black Widow' and so on and so forth," Linda says. "When you have such publicity that accompanied this trial, you move the trial—you change the venue. You [dis]continue the trial until the publicity abates, and then you absolutely sequester the jury. He did none of those, and I believe he violated her constitutional right to a fair trial."
