Interview on KPFA’s Up Front with Rachel Wolkenstein

KPFA’s Up Front interviewed Rachel Wolkenstein on Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner’s decision to appeal Judge Tucker’s ruling that Pennsylvania Supreme Court Chief Justice, Ron Castille¬†violated the Pennsylvania Code of Judicial Conduct as well as Mumia’s due process rights. Castille did this by serving as Philadelphia’s District Attorney, responsible for prosecuting Mumia’s direct appeals (and seeking to execute Mumia), and then afterwards presiding as PA Supreme Court Chief Justice over Mumia’s subsequent collateral (PCRA) appeals.

Wolkenstein also discusses the “discovery” of additional boxes of files in the Philadelphia DA’s office which were not disclosed to Judge Tucker during the hearings.
