Gerry Goldstein Begins Questioning Former Prosecutor in Hannah Overton Hearing
As reported by KIII TV on April 25th, 2012, the Hannah Overton hearing continued at the Nueces County Courthouse in Corpus Christi for the third day of testimony in which attorney Gerry Goldstein is trying to get Overton’s capital murder conviction overturned.
One of Overton’s attorneys said key evidence was withheld from the defense when she was convicted of killing her 4-year old foster son, Andrew Burd. Burd died in 2006 of elevated sodium levels. Former prosecutor Sandra Eastwood took the stand for the first day, in which Goldstein, Overton’s defense attorney, questioned whether she was abusing prescription drugs during the 2007 capital murder trial.
