David Calder, associate clinical professor and director of the Child Advocacy Clinic, was a member of the team who freed Michelle Byrom, who was almost executed for the shooting death of her husband.

“We are very grateful that the Mississippi Supreme Court has granted Michelle Byrom’s request for relief from her death sentence,” Professor Calder said. “This was a team effort on the part of the attorneys currently representing Michelle, and we believe that the court reached a just and fair result under the facts presented in this case.”
