A Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus has been filed on Scott's behalf with the Supreme Court of the State of California.
Information in this document highlights new evidence showing that the Court should overturn Scott's conviction. There are 19 claims in the petition which include the following:
Evidence that the numerous neighbors saw Laci alive walking their dog, McKenzie, after Scott had left for the day.
Evidence that Laci interrupted the man robbing the house across the street from Scott and Laci. (A robbery occured directly across the street from Scott and Laci's home the day she went missing.)
Forensic evidence that puts Laci and Conner's date of death in January.
Each of the above examples, as well as others in the petition, argue Scott's innocence.
There is also a claim made that a juror withheld critical information that would have barred her from getting on the jury. This violated Scott's right to a fair trial.
This document is separate from Scott's Appellant Brief, but either document could result in the Court overturning Scott's conviction. Realistically, it will probably be another 2-3 years before the Supreme Court of the State of California considers the case.
