    GREGORY HUNT vs COMMISSIONER, ALABAMA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS

    No. 09-15310.
    United States Court of Appeals, Eleventh Circuit.

    January 5, 2012.

    Before DUBINA, Chief Judge, and TJOFLAT and WILSON, Circuit Judges.

    Gregory Hunt is a death-row inmate in the Alabama prison system as a result of his conviction for capital murder on June 19, 1990. Hunt seeks a writ of habeas corpus on the ground that he received ineffective assistance of counsel in violation of the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. To obtain the writ, Hunt must establish that the decision of the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals rejecting his claims "was contrary to, or involved an unreasonable application of, clearly established Federal law, as determined by the Supreme Court of the United States," or "was based on an unreasonable determination of the facts in light of the evidence presented in the State court proceeding." 28 U.S.C. 2254(d). The district court, concluding that Hunt had established neither point, denied the writ. After reviewing the record and considering the parties' arguments, we affirm.

    In today's United States Supreme Court orders, Hunt's petition for writ of certiorari was DENIED.

    Execution date could follow.
    A uninformed opponent is a dangerous opponent.

    "[Walker County District Attorney Bill] Adair said the victim’s mother has died since Hunt was sentenced and her father is in failing health. Adair said her father has expressed fear that he may not live long enough to see justice for his daughter.

    “What do you say to that? It’s just heartbreaking,” Adair said. “He’s a wonderful man who has gone through terrible loss and needs it to be concluded before he passes away. It is inconceivable that justice has still not been served for this victim.” "

    I hope they carry out his death sentence while the father of the victim is still alive. It seems so unfair that he is still waiting for justice.
