Jonathon Salvador; Texas: Grits for Breakfast; Two predictions; Texas Court of Criminal Appeals will overturn Salvador-tainted cases no matter what other evidence exists - and a recent "sweeping judgment" means that nearly 5,000 cases are in jeopardy;

POST: "TXCCA (Texas  Court of Criminal Appeals) will overturn Salvador-tainted cases no matter whatever evidence exists," published by Grits for Breakfast on June 7, 2013.

GIST:  "Of course, back in March Grits was already predicting thousands of cases - potentially every one Salvador ever worked on - could be overturned, a possibility that seems ever-more certain with each passing Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruling related to the case. Long before March, it was apparent that hundreds of cases may be overturned in instances where evidence had been destroyed and was unavailable for retesting. Then the CCA's sweeping judgment that any case was tainted in which evidence was at some point in Salvador's custody meant nearly 5,000 cases are in jeopardy."
