Ray and Shirley Souza — the Case that Made Martha Coakley a Star

[Note: Friends of Justice is a personal blog. I speak only for myself.]

Dear Friend of Justice,

While a few remember Coakley’s disgraceful (but late) involvement in the Amirault case, fewer remember her career-making prosecution of two innocent Lowell grandparents, convicted (without evidence) of sexually abusing their grandchildren.

Coakley was the prosecutor.

Please read this account of the case by Mark Pendergrast.
