A Mother Accused
Andrea D. Lyon
Kaplan Publishing
September 1, 2009

In one of her most memorable and shocking cases, death penalty defense lawyer Andrea D. Lyon defended a woman accused of murdering her child. Though many considered her client indefensible, Lyon was—and still remains—unshakable in her belief that every man and woman, no matter their guilt or innocence, deserves a fair trial and a chance at redemption.

In “A Mother Accused,” an excerpt from her forthcoming memoir Angel of Death Row, Lyon tells the story of Annette Gaines, who stood trial for the murder of her 22-month-old daughter. Heart-wrenching and surprising, it was a case that changed not only the life of the defendant and her family but Lyon’s life as well.

Alan M. Dershowitz says, Lyon “was born to be an angel of death row, and a devil to those who see execution as a quick fix for the social ills of our age.” In this extraordinary story, we see why.
