Multiple jurors said they wanted to convict, but the way the indictment was written limited their ability to find guilt and District Attorney Paul Howard didn’t deliver evidence promised in his opening remarks.
“Everybody walked,” Wilson said. “But you know what we did? We brought Jacinth home, and we buried him.
“Jacinth never received justice. The family’s not happy. The family is still in turmoil. It’ll be 13 years and everybody’s still angry and getting older, and the justice system still fails us.”
Wilson will concede that Lewis probably didn’t wield a knife in the killings, but he’s convinced the All-Pro linebacker knows more than he has divulged and backed the Oakley and Sweeting defense teams.
In Wilson’s mind, they’re all guilty of torturing Baker’s family. Wilson reasoned that perhaps God has forgiven Lewis for what happened in Atlanta, but he suggested that Lewis continues to sin by denying justice.
“Not one of them has a conscience,” Wilson said of Lewis’ entourage. “I hope that every one of them in that limousine are being haunted mentally to the day they die about what happened that night to Jacinth and Richard.
“They’re going to answer to God. They’re going to burn in hell.”
