Charles Russell Rhines has been appealing his death sentence for the past 23 years, but his appeals process is coming to an end. Earlier this week, a federal judge denied Rhines' petition for habeas relief based on his contention that he didn't get sufficient representation from his lawyers. Rhines' next step is the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, if he gets permission from the federal court to once again appeal.
