Susan Smith is wanting a new freaking trial. OMG. She thinks that her being molested as a child should be her "alibi" for murdering her two babies. I watched footage of them re-creating the car rolling into the water. Those babies had a really long time to be scared. They had a really long time to be crying for mommy to get them out of the water. I dont care if she was molested. Get therapy. Kill your crap-father that did it to you. But dont roll your babies into a river and leave them to drown.

I would like to add...before anyone starts bashing me....I dont think she should really go and kil her father (unless we have a time-machine and her killing him would save the lives of her babies.....................I also understand that molestation is serious and therapy might not help.) Bah.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (Jan. 25) -- The South Carolina mother convicted in 1995 of killing her two sons by rolling her car into a lake is asking for a new trial, but a prosecutor said Saturday she faces a deadline problem.

Susan Smith, here in 1995, is serving a life sentence for killing her 3-year-old and 14-month-old sons in 1994.

Susan Smith, 38, filed a handwritten petition Jan. 19 in Union County for post-conviction relief, claiming her Miranda rights were violated because she was questioned without a lawyer present in interviews that led to her arrest, and that her defense attorney was inadequate and didn't allow her to plead guilty.

She does not currently have a lawyer, 16th Circuit Solicitor Kevin Brackett said Saturday.

The appeal comes a month after her petition in federal court for a new trial was dismissed, citing her need to first exhaust state remedies.

Smith is serving a life sentence at a maximum-security state prison near Greenwood following her July 1995 murder conviction.

She captured the national spotlight when her boys, 3-year-old Michael and 14-month-old Alex, disappeared Oct. 25, 1994.

She told deputies they had been taken by a black man in a carjacking at a red light, and she cried on national television as she begged for their safe return. Nine days later, she confessed to strapping them into their car seats and letting the car roll into a lake. The boys' bodies were found in the car, submerged a few feet from a boat ramp at John D. Long Lake in Union County.

In her petition, Smith writes that her history of being sexually abused should have been considered as her alibi.

At trial, Smith disclosed she was molested as a child by her stepfather.

The deadline for post-conviction relief is usually one year from an appeal, but since she never filed an appeal, it would be one year from the trial ending, Brackett said: "Her first hurdle would be explaining the delay."

He said the attorney general's office will assign a prosecutor to handle the case, and Smith may be appointed a lawyer, or it may be dismissed before it gets to court because of the missed deadline.

"Sometimes people file these motions because they don't have anything better to do," he said.

Smith is up for parole on Nov. 4, 2024.

I agree with you. She is just looking for any excuse...and there is none. She is where she deserves to be and I hope she rots in jail!

That stupid bitch.   I hoped she's been enjoying the ass raping that I'm sure her baby-killing ass has been getting in prison.

I agree.

I was molested as a child and I've never once thought about hurting my child or another human because of it.It's just a sick excuse for her.And why,after all these years is she asking for a new trial because of it?
