Can a painful memory be lost, yet decades later be recalled in detail? That question led lawyers for Street Priest Paul Shanley to appeal his conviction of indecent assault and rape of a child. The verdict held, but the topic is controversial.
James Chu, MD is the psychiatrist who provided testimony on recovered memories for the prosecution in the Shanley trial, and for the prosecution in the Christian Gerhartsreiter kidnapping case. He advised the defense in the Amy Bishop murder case.
