Freedom 4 Justin and Justice for All

    1. Petition by

      T Q

      york, PA

The wrongful convictions in America are taking over our prisons and something needs done to correct this problem. 

According to channel 8 wgal.com the State of Pennsylvania pays nearly $33,000.00 per inmate per day. There are many people that do not even make that much money in a year.  Social workers for the Department of Public Welfare and Children & Youth Services do not even make that much. “

Is it right to lock up someone in prison all because “She” said he did it? That is what happened to a 20 year old young man who had never been in trouble with the law and because the attorney the family hired (Emmanuel H. Dimitriou) died prior to trial that Dimitriou said they were doing because he knew she was lying... This young man ended up with Kurt Geishauser; the son in law and personal assistant of Dimitriou…and this young man ended up convicted of a crime in which he did not commit.  The families business attorney, John Szajna attended the sentencing for support and from what he remembers this young man should have been home by now.

This young man could have counter sued for assault charges but no one bothered to look at his bruised face or the scratches on his back... But even though she was bigger than he... it didn't matter and no questions were asked... he was guilty! The constitution states, "Innocent until proven guilty"... well, in this case... he was guilty from the beginning and there was no proof to prove either innocent or guilt.

Two witnesses that were not even there testified on her behalf (one being her ex and then present boyfriend).

A family member of this young man is now a 2nd year criminal justice major and is learning so much that went wrong ...and the errors first started with the young man and his families ignorance and trust in our judicial system and the other is the incompetent attorney that ended up pocketing the $10,000 the family spent on his father in law, Dimitriou. 

Please read www.freedom4justin.com and see how this all went down.

Something needs done because while this young man sits in state prison and is forced to take a program and admit to guilt instead of continuing with college ~ all the while, she (the alleged victim) continues to bartend and waitress...something is wrong here and needs fixed! 

So, what would you do??? Admit to guilt in order to get out of jail or ... sit there and max out? It is a catch twenty two... your damned if you do and your damned if you don't.

Please copy and paste the link and read the article by someone that was convicted and thanks to DNA he was proven innocent…

But the question is…what if there is no DNA evidence like in this particular case…?

      My son was wrongfully convicted and serving 10-15 yrs. He had a useless public defender and a corrupt judge. He is now trying for a new trial, not much success.

      I `m signing this petition because I had a simular one that only got 7 signatures. Something has to be done to change the way cases are run in court. I believe that juries should know everything there is to know,not what the judge will allow

      My 14 year old son is currently behind bars, because of witnesses saying they seen a suspect running towards our house. One of the witnesses said they did not see the gun man, but seen a suspect running towards our house, that same witness has had hostility towards our family for 8 years now and his sons who are much older than my son have harasses my son in the pass. When the second incident happen, there were 2 witnesses outside and they also said they did not see the suspect.

      The sheriffs around our house have been trying label my son as a gang member for quite a while now and when they arrested my son they put him on their gang file, which my son is not from a gang nor does he associate with gang members. Since the sheriffs label my son as a active gang member, the DA refused to give my son house arrested while we fight his case. So my son had to miss out on a lot of his school work that he had while being out here. My son was in a medical program that the high school has for kids who have good grades and do well in school.

      I am signing the this petition because there are a lot of kids and adults like my son who get accuse of a crime they did not commit and are falsie accuse because of someone else’s hostility, towards a person. I think those people should be the ones who should end up in jail, not the innocent ones.

      We need change in the justice system, we see far too many innocent people in USA prisons.

      Same for my son who was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to 14 years in prison just because she said he did it. Now my sons' life and reputation is ruined for something he did not do. I know this because I and other family members and friends were there when she said it happened. But at his trial we were all accused of lying to protect him and called liars. Without any evidence or witnesses against my son he was railroaded by the DA's & the jury found him guilty. If my son would have plead guilty took their 3 year plea bargain he would only have to serve 1 year in prison as his jury trial took 2 years to finally begin. Now why would u admit guilt to a crime u did not commit. Only guilty people agree to the easy way out & receive virtually no time at all compared to the innocent ones who fight for their rights and freedom. Now tell me where is the Justice in that.
