Civil Rights attorney Mawuli Davis says, “We had the truth, community, and a team of young people who were committed to working around the clock in defense of Jessie’s life.” He attributes all those factors to the outcome of the criminal case against his client. It was three years ago that now-38-year-old Jessie Murray was charged with shooting and killing former Forest Park, Georgia, police officer Nathan Adams. It happened during a fight between Murray, Adams, and several other men who were described as being drunk.
