Post Conviction/Sentencing

Dylann Roof, the white supremacist sentenced to death for killing nine black church members, is asking a court to remove his appointed appellate lawyers because they “are my political and biological enemies.”

In a pro se motion filed with the Richmond, Virginia-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Roof says the lawyers, Alexandra Yates and Sapna Mirchandani, “are Jewish and Indian, respectively. It is therefore quite literally impossible that they and I could have the same interests relating to my case.” BuzzFeed News, the State, the Post and Courier and Charleston City Paper covered the filing.

Roof also clashed with his court-appointed lawyer, David Bruck, during his trial. Roof wrote that in his motion that Bruck is Jewish and “his ethnicity was a constant source of conflict even with my constant efforts to look past it.”

Roof has said he killed the church members because he hoped to start a race war.
