Hannah Overton

Wrongfully convicted of murder

In 2007, Hannah Overton was sentenced to life in prison for the death of her 4-year-old foster son. Overton spent seven years in prison before the Texas Court of Appeals overturned her capital murder charges on September 17, 2014. Cynthia Hujar-Orr, Gerry Goldstein and John Raley were apart of Overton’s appellate team that helped overturn the conviction.

Nueces County jurors believed she failed to seek medical care for her foster son in a timely manner. It was later believed the boy suffered a rare medical condition called hypernatremia, which can cause fatal sodium levels in the body.
