 My husbands name is Curtis Shuler Jr and he is currently serving a term of natural life in prison without the possibility of parole. He was a sixteen year old juvenile when he was arrested in 1998. He was charged with Premeditated First Degree Murder on a victim that a 'sworn' jury 'ACQUITTED Him'. The jury never found him guilty of killing the victim. In fact the jury acquitted himof every 'essential element' to constitute the crime. Yet instead of following state and federal laws when it comes to legally inconsistent verdicts the prosecutor persuaded the judge to find jim guilty as charged and the court adjudicated him guilty as charge despite the judges confusion as to the verdict. Federal and state law requires that verdicts rendered like his  'REQUIRE ACQUITTAL”.  He has  a life sentence without benefit of parole for a murder he was never convicted of doing. He was wrongfully convicted and railroaded by the state.

Iin 1998, there were a totat of 7 teens who were convicted of murder and prosecuted by the same states attorney, John Aguero. He gave the white teenagers, less then life in which two are already free and the other two will be coming home soon. The three black teens were given life without parole. Why did he feel compassion for the white teen's and not the black teen's?

What I am asking is for immediate release of my husband.

      I have spoken with his Attorney and researched the facts in this case and this is not the legal system i believe in and this case needs to be reviewed by higher courts.

      I am a compliance officer professionally and also a husband, father, and son as well. I have been aware of Curits situation for a long time and have always been concerned. The legal system was inadequate when Curtis was convicetd and still is today. I believe that with prayer, dedicatin and commitment anythiong is possible. Curtis can and will come home. I also understand that for this to happen certain may have to be exposed as it should be. His wife is one of the most caring, loving , and strongest woman that I know and they deserve an opportunity to be a family.
