NEWS (7/​21/​21) — Ohio: The Ohio Supreme Court has vacat­ed the con­vic­tion and death sen­tence for George Brinkman, find­ing that he had not been advised of crit­i­cal con­sti­tu­tion­al rights when he entered a guilty plea in his 2018 cap­i­tal tri­al and that his plea was there­fore invalid. The jus­tices vacat­ed Brinkman’s plea and returned his case to the Cuyahoga County court to con­duct a new trial.
