Change of Venue

The Mississippi Court of Appeals decided Davis v. State yesterday located here.  This case gives a detailed analysis of what is necessary in order to get a change of venue in a criminal case.  The Court of Appeals ultimately found that the trial court erred in denying the change of venue as the State failed to put on any proof to rebut the presumption that a fair trial could not be had based upon the affidavits and such presented.
