Frimpong Habeas Corpus Petition Waits Longer


Thursday, August 11, 2011

Judge Brian Hill has issued another extension of time—until 9/14—for him to respond to a habeas corpus petition from convicted rapist Eric Frimpong, a former UCSB soccer player who is currently in the midst of a six-year prison term. In the habeas petition, which was filed on 1/5 in Santa Barbara, Frimpong’s attorneys argue that he is innocent and did not receive a fair trial, and that there is evidence exonerating him.
