Plenary Session I
Guilty Until Proven Innocent: The roles that advocacy and compassion play in establishing innocence
New England Innocence Project
Senior Advisor on Forensic Science Policy
Fire Scene Cause and Origin Expert Islamorada , Florida
Ellis was convicted in 1995, at his third trial, for the murder and robbery of Boston Police Detective John Mulligan in the pre-dawn hours of Sept. 26, 1993. The murder was a brutal assassination, with five shots lobbed in the detective's face as he slept in his SUV outside the Roslindale Walgreens while working a security detail. Sean was 19 at the time.
Days after the crime, Sean spoke voluntarily to detectives, without a lawyer present, telling them he'd shopped at the Walgreens mall around 3 a.m. that day for diapers for his cousin's baby, driven there by his friend, Terry Patterson, then 18. Police found the diaper receipt that confirmed the errand in Ellis's apartment. His attorney, Rosemary Scapicchio, asks, “Would you place yourself at a murder scene if you were guilty?”
