END POLICE & PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT ONCE & FOR ALL!
Just over a year ago, Governor Brown took a revolutionary and much needed step by signing into law, California Assembly Bill 1909 - which holds law enforcement criminally liable with felony charges and up to three years prison time for falsifying or withholding favorable evidence. https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201520160AB1909
" I hear so many stories about innocent people across California and across the nation, who have been wrongfully convicted. I just hope that when people think the rules don't apply to them, they will think twice before they abuse their power"
http://www.davisvanguard.org/2017/01/justice-watch-prosecutorial-misconduct-felony-california/ Stated newcomer yet visionary Assemblywoman Patty Lopez ( to support her run for the 39th District again in April 2018, go to www.pattylopez2018.com ), who authored 1909 was designed to prevent (or at least curb) wrongful convictions caused by police & prosecutor's misconduct , a move was unanimously passed by legislature, applauded by the voting public as well as the media as a game changer in the right direction.
But those falsely accused and wrongfully convicted from over a decade, like Anand Jon Alexander, who has not just uncovered newly discovered evidence and or previously withheld ( by police and prosecutors) exculpatory evidence that would exonerate him, but is a poster-boy victim of exactly what 1909 was passed to cure- are still fighting to get relief. https://www.change.org/p/jerry-brown-free-anand-jon-alexander
Despite the tremendous challenges many who are falsely accused are fighting back and winning. Brian Banks who recently exonerated of similar false allegations of rape with the assistance of Justin Brooks of The Innocence Project http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2017/11/17/only-on-2-wrongly-accused-of-rape-brian-banks-life-becoming-a-movie/ as well as Ryan Ferguson have launched films & TV shows http://www.newsweek.com/final-appeal-new-true-crime-investigative-series-wrongful-convictions-785988 Jeffrey Deskovic, Kian Khatibi & Jarrett Adams have gone to become lawyers all having won their freedom, have since gone on to become champions of justice, vocal spokespersons, launched campaigns and organizations which bolster Governor Jerry Brown and Patty Lopez breakthrough law.
"Police and prosecutors must be held accountable for wrongful convictions. How would you feel if you lost 17 years of your life in prison for Crime you did not commit?"
