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.

About the Author

Andrea D. Lyon is Director of the Center for Justice in Capital Cases and Clinical Professor of Law, Associate Dean for Clinical Programs, at DePaul University College of Law. She began her career at the Cook County Public Defenders' Office, working her way up to Chief of the Homicide Task Force, a 22-lawyer unit that represents people accused of homicide.

Andrea has tried more than 130 homicide cases, both within the public defender's office and elsewhere. She has defended more than 30 potential capital cases at the trial level. Of these, she has taken 19 through the penalty phase, and won them all. She lives in Chicago, Illinois.
