Daniel Green, one of the convicts in the James Jordan murder, will have a documentary miniseries dedicated to his case.
Daniel Green has been filing motions for the past 20 years in an attempt to get his case reviewed by the court. A Superior Court blocked those efforts in January 2020. Green told WRAL by phone that he wasn’t surprised by the latest ruling on his case:
“I’m not surprised, because I’m innocent of the crime, yet I was convicted. I’ve been fighting for 26 years trying to access to the courts.”
“The people of North Carolina should be afraid of any institution that relies on fear and bribery to muzzle those charged with protecting basic due process. This does not serve the interests of the Jordan family. They’re being manipulated. I do apologize for my role in helping create this situation.”
Michael Jordan, on his part, says that he hasn’t forgiven Green for his actions. He once said he couldn’t trust himself to be in the same room as his father’s killers.
Documentary miniseries on Daniel Green
Green’s lawyers are making the following claims regarding his conviction:
- Improperly admitted blood evidence at trial
- A phone call between James Jordan and a drug dealer that was never revealed to the defense
- Possibly corrupted evidence of a bullet hole on Mr. Jordan’s shirt
The most shocking piece of new evidence in Green’s favor has just emerged. Larry Demery, the co-defendant who testified against Green at trial in exchange for leniency, has recanted his testimony.
The miniseries is expected to focus on all the judicial mishandling that took place in the entire conviction. Green was sentenced for this murder in the year 1996, but he’s finally being granted a new trial.
