The nightmare began in July of 2009.
The odyssey that began for the main character in Pinned – An Injustice in Kentucky, continues in Stains on the Gavel and describes what some might call, Kentucky Injustice.
Mark Casey, a transplant from New York State, is going on trial in Kentucky for crimes he did not commit. His highly paid lawyer thinks he is innocent. So do all his friends and family. Even the people in the community of Burkesville, with whom he has had dealings while frequenting some of the local establishments agree that what has happened to him sounds like a set up.
His lawyer has a track record of winning big lawsuits and this particular case is a big deal for a little rural town where nothing much ever happens. The Prosecution has virtually no evidence against him and the case is built on speculation. It's looking like an acquittal is the logical outcome.
But remember, this is southern Kentucky where the rules are sometimes made up on the fly and money, as always, carries a lot of weight. Our character is about to find that even in the Bible-Belt, not everybody lives by the Golden Rule, and sometimes personal gain can outweigh the obvious call for justice.
The book starts up on the day of the trial and sequentially details the actions and reactions all of the characters involved. Details of Mark’s physical and emotional turmoil include descriptions of his various physical problems and the lack of treatment, internal legal battles within a lax justice system, hardships encountered in prison and ultimately Marks ability to overcome incredible odds and return to freedom.
This true story is rife with back room deals and corruption by public officials, whose only agenda is their own personal gain. Pinned started this epic tale. When the tale finally concludes with Stains, everyone involved is changed, some better and some worse.
