Notable cases

Judge denies new trial for Ryan Ferguson

Judge Green ruled that there would be no new trial for Ryan Ferguson, who was convicted of a 2005 murder, despite recanted testimony.

Ryan Ferguson and Charles Erickson were accused of the 2001 murder of Kent Heitholt, a sports editor for the Columbia Tribune. Erickson, made a deal with law enforcement to implicate Ferguson, who was then sentenced to 40 years in prison in 2005. Erickson got 25 years. Ferguson maintained his innocence. Erickson, in 2012, recanted his testimony that Ferguson was active in the murder. Another key witness, Jerry Trump, who had previously testified that he saw Ferguson at the scene of the crime, recanted his testimony as well.[7] In denying a new trial, Judge Green stated, "This Court finds the recantation of Erickson to be not credible and false."[8]

Ferguson was released in late 2013 after an appeals court found that he did not receive a fair trial. See the story of his release on Judge Kevin Crane's page.
