CWC client Kristine Bunch is a step closer to freedom after languishing 16 years behind bars for the arson murder of her 3-year-old son in Decatur County, Indiana. The Indiana Supreme Court today denied the prosecution’s request to review an Indiana Court of Appeals decision reversing and remanding the case. Kristine is represented by a team led by CWC Advisory Board Member Ronald Safer, of Schiff Hardin; Kelly M. Warner, a Schiff Hardin partner, and CWC staff attorneys Jane Raley and Karen Daniel.
