Prof. Uphoff Comments on Ryan Ferguson Case as Expert in Wrongful Convictions

November 7th, 2013

Prof. Rod Uphoff

Prof. Rod Uphoff has recently been sought by the media as an expert in wrongful convictions concerning the case of a Columbia man. In 2005, Ryan Ferguson was convicted of the robbery and murder of Columbia Tribune Sports Editor Kent Heitholt. On Nov. 5, the Missouri Court of Appeals for the Western District of Missouri overturned Ferguson’s conviction.

Prof. Uphoff explained to the media why the Missouri Court of appeals granted Ferguson’s writ of habeas corpus overturning Ferguson’s murder conviction and predicted that it is very unlikely that the state will opt re- file charges against Ferguson because of the limited evidence linking him to the crime.
