Client’s Death Sentence Reformed to Life

April 15, 2020

On April 15, 2020, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals granted habeas corpus relief to James Lee Henderson on his Atkins v. Virginia claim and reformed his death sentence to life in prison.  This stunning victory is the culmination of more than 21 years of representation in state and federal court (including at the U.S. Supreme Court) by NBA partner, Eric M. Albritton, who began representing Mr. Henderson in 1998.
