Hernandez to file new motion

Gerardo Hernandez

Lawyers for Gerardo Hernandez, one of the Cubans serving time in American prisons in connection with the Cuban Five affair, will return to court in June 2010—nine years after his original conviction—to present a writ of habeas corpus, asking the judge in the case to reconsider his sentence.

Three other members of the Five—Ramon Labañino, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando Gonzalez—were re-sentenced to lesser terms last fall.

Following his conviction in June 2001, Hernandez was handed two life terms plus 15 years. The final member of the Five, Rene Gonzalez, received a 15-year prison term. Neither man was included in the 2009 re-sentencing process.
