Free Bates!

John Bates, valet for Lord Grantham of Downton Abbey, was convicted of murdering his wife with rat poison. He was framed and is innocent. While his death sentence has been commuted, he is now been sentenced to life in prison. We urge British authorities to re-open the case and find the real murderer so that Mr. Bates can be freed and we can move on with his story line.
