The Alabama Supreme Court on Friday ruled against the state in an appeal about jury information in a Tuscaloosa County capital murder case.
Albert Mack III was convicted in 1995 of capital murder in the shooting death of Patrick Holman. Holman’s body was found July 13, 1993, in the trunk of a partly burned car on Sanders Ferry Road.
Mack had sought demographic information for Tuscaloosa County from 1978-1995 to determine if the grand and petit juries in his case adequately reflected the racial makeup of the county.
Mack asked for the information in a post-conviction appeal based on the alleged ineffectiveness of his attorney. Mack said his attorney failed to challenge the alleged underrepresentation of blacks on the juries.
Mack asked the Court of Criminal Appeals to order access to the information. The state appealed the Court of Criminal Appeals’ affirmative ruling.
The Supreme Court ruled against the state in Friday’s 6-2 ruling.
Mack’s conviction and death sentence already have been upheld by the Supreme Court. Friday’s ruling was over a post-conviction appeal.
In March, a Tuscaloosa judge ordered the circuit clerk to produce jury venire lists from 1978-95 but only two lists produced contained information regarding the race and gender of the jury pools.
The attorney general’s office, which handles death penalty cases, said it had no immediate comment.
