Gov. Terry McAuliffe

Pardon an innocent man: Bobbie Morman Jr.

We are coming together in the belief that public petition and investigative journalism can make a difference in the lives of real people in our community. Together we can give a man, Bobbie Morman Jr, his life back. 

Bobbie Morman Jr. is in prison for a crime that another man admitted to committing directly to the judge.  He has been serving a 48 year sentence since 1994. 20 years after the sentencing the local news has made a public investigation, including reviews of the court transcripts and an interview with the individual who admitted to the crime. Now after failed appeals, the best option for Bobbie Morman Jr. is to ask for a pardon from the Virginia Governor, Terry McAuliffe.

I started this petition because the Morman family was a part of my childhood neighborhood, Norvella Heights in Norfolk, VA. My family has witnessed the pain and suffering of the Morman family for so long that we can no longer stand idling by. 

Please take a moment to review the broadcast provided in the link.  Thank your for your time and support. A special thanks to Jessica Larche, of WTKR channel 3 News.

      I am in awe of the immediate responses and support: nearly reaching our first goal of 100 signatures! This journey and effort to help Bobbie may take significant amount of signatures and more time, but we can do this! Remember that we can multiply our impact by reaching out to people we know and asking them to take 30 seconds of their time to do something truly meaningful.

      If each person who signs can make an effort to get another 2-3 people, it will create a giant snowball of signatures that will not be overlooked by Governor Terry McAuliffe!

      This is for you Bobbie (aka Juice) Morman Jr. and others like you who are being oppressed in our community.

      I Need our legal system to be flawless instead of lawless and a case like this are a mockery of the justice system.

      This is important to me because a innocent man should be set free and the man who did it admitted to the crime.
