Mingo County Man's Appeal Rejected

{West Virginia}...In a July 13th ruling, the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals rejected the appeal of George Lecco, a police misconduct as well. His appeal also said the jury should have heard evidence that he helped out in his community. County man serving life in prison after a Charleston jury convicted him of ordering the murder of police informant Carla Collins. The jury found Lecco had suggested Collins become a drug informant, but then turned on her when he resumed dealing cocaine out of his Red Jacket pizza parlor. The appeal argued the jury wrongly heard from an unreliable witness and a co-defendant who pleaded guilty, police misconduct, and the jury should have heard evidence that he helped out in his community.
