Bloomberg: Andrea Yates unlikely to be released, law prof says

Release Date: July 27, 2006

An article distributed by Bloomberg news service quoted Charles P. Ewing, professor of law, in an article on the verdict in the Andrea Yates case. "Theoretically, she's eligible for release when she's no longer mentally ill and dangerous," he said. "The question is when will somebody be willing to certify that she's no longer mentally ill and dangerous? What doctor is going to make that statement? And what judge will accept it and order her release?" Go to article.
