This Note will examine State ex rel. Amrine v Roper in light of the decision in Herrera and the subsequent cases; cases in which states made determination about state habeas relief in response to the ruling of the United State Supreme Court. In granting habeas relief to Amrine, the Missouri Supreme Court changed previous law that would have allowed Amrine to be executed despite having persuasive evidence of actual innocence.
