6. Here's how I read the following:

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals overturned Hartfield's murder conviction in 1980 because it found a potential juror improperly was dismissed for expressing reservations about the death penalty. The state tried twice but failed to get the court to re-examine that ruling, . . .

The Tx. Court of Appeals overturned the murder conviction, the prisoner should have been released at that time.

The state wanted the Tx. Court of Appeals to re-examine overturning the murder conviction, but the Court wouldn't.

So the Gov. of Texas made up his own conviction and sentence.

Call the ACLU and sue the crap out of the State for 32 years of involuntary confinement.
