Crenshaw to Run for Court of Criminal Appeals

By Alabama Public Radio

Montgomery, AL – Crenshaw says he will call for reform on death penalty appeals and make speedy decisions on his cases. He is the chief of the attorney general's capital litigation unit. He's seeking the seat currently held by Democrat Sue Bell Cobb, who is running for chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. Crenshaw will face Julia Elizabeth ``Beth'' Kellum, who's a senior staff attorney at the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals. The Republican primary will be held on June sixth, 2006. Crenshaw says his top priority as an appeals judge would be to prevent capital murder cases from going into lengthy appeals.
