Free Willie: A murderer is about to be released; one woman says we could have kept him locked down

Willie Featherstone is about to be set free again, and that concerns a local non-profit that works with women.

"I can't believe this rapist murderer is getting out of prison!" says the non-profit's director, who asked not to be named because she feared for her safety. "The state's attorney bungled a rape case for one of our clients and tested her horribly and this is the result."
