Louie Ganzie appeal also denied

And while Alberto Vellos et al were celebrating their victory, Louis Gentle aka “Louie Ganzie” was being remanded to prison to serve out his life sentence. This morning, Ganzie’s appeal was dismissed by Justices Sosa, Mottle, and Carey. He was convicted of the murder of his ex-common law wife Takeisha Sutherland, which occurred on January third, 2007. In handing down their ruling, the Justices noted that Ganzie utilized the services of both a private counsel and legal aid. They wondered about the propriety of it since legal aid is reserved for those who cannot afford an attorney and the justices said that this situation may need to be looked into.
