Nathaniel Code Opening Statement – September 1990

For 10 years Scott served as an assistant district attorney.  On his first day on the job in 1981 he successfully prosecuted a case in which the accused ran a stop sign; on his last day in 1990, after a 23 day trial, he argued to a Caddo jury that it should return a death sentence in State of Louisiana v. Nathaniel Code . The jury agreed and sent Code to Angola’s death row.
