Albany -- A state court of appeals judge says the thirty year wait for the execution of Carl Issacs was an embarrassment to Georgia's legal system.
Judge Harris Adams from Marietta says mistakes were made in the trial of Carl Issacs, that deserved appeal hearings. But Adams says thirty years before executing him for the murders of 6 members of the Alday family in Seminole County was "embarrassing."
Judge Adams said "We always want to use care in a death penalty case, and make sure. But any review could be completed in a far shorter time than 30 years. That's abusive."
Issacs was the longest serving death row inmate in United States History. He was executed May 6th.
