Winston & Strawn Pro Bono Attorneys Secure Plea Agreement for Tennessee Death Row Prisoner Andrew Thomas

On August 1, 2019, Winston & Strawn attorneys looked on as their client and former death row prisoner Andrew Thomas received a 25-year sentence from a Tennessee criminal court judge after reaching a plea agreement with the State. This reduced sentence, which will run consecutively with a federal life sentence, was secured after pro bono attorneys won Mr. Thomas a rare grant of habeas relief from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in February 2017.
