Cole’s family frustrated by lack of pardon

 
Frustrated family members of Texas’ first posthumous exoneration held out hope that the state could pardon a Fort Worth man discovered innocent almost 10 years after he died in prison.A proposed constitutional amendment giving the governor authority to pardon Timothy Brian Cole became one of the myriad casualties of a partisan fight over voter identification legislation. Texas law does not specify whether a person needs to be alive to receive a pardon. The governor’s office cites a brief, 44-year-old attorney general’s opinion that clearly states he may only pardon the living.  http://lubbockonline.com/stories/060609/loc_447973286.shtml
