More On “Brain Fingerprinting”


— April 30, 2004

Jimmie Ray Slaughter has always denied any knowledge of the double murders for which he was convicted and sentenced to death in 1994. Now he may have the evidence to prove it.

A controversial new technique, known as a brain fingerprinting test, purportedly shows that Slaughter has no knowledge of certain details of the crime about which the real perpetrator would have to have known. �To me, this test proves that Jimmie Ray Slaughter is innocent,� says Norman, Okla., lawyer Robert Jackson, one of Slaughter�s appellate attorneys.

I linked to an earlier BBC article about this here. More details from the current article in the ABA Journal are here.
