Debate About the Location of the Tim Cole Memorial Moves to KFYO

Lubbock County

City councilman Todd Klein and attorney Kevin Glasheen have been working on a proposal for a memorial to Tim Cole, who died behind bars  after being convicted of a crime he did not commit.  At Thursday’s council meeting, Klein is expected to present the plan to the council.

Klein wants the memorial to be located at University Avenue and 19th Street, near the location where Cole was arrested.  On Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, Glasheen explained why he believes locating  the memorial at the courthouse could cause problems.

“It could create jury bias,” Glasheen said.  “Every criminal trial, the defense lawyer’s closing argument is going to be ‘Go downstairs and read that memorial before you do what the Tim Cole jury did’ and the prosecutors would object to that’ and with good reason.”

Glasheen has said  his firm will pay for the memorial.
