Dear Governor Newsom,

We are asking that you support Orlando Watley in his fight for exoneration so that he can be granted a new trial after being wrongfully incarcerated for the past twenty-seven years for a crime he did not commit. Mr. Watley is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole and we need your support to overturn this miscarriage of justice that the legal system has carried out against this man.

The DNA evidence used to secure Mr. Watley’s conviction must be revisited by both legal and forensic experts and reexamined with the rigors of modern technology and forensic analysis so that Orlando Watley can be granted a new trial and his wrongful conviction can be overturned restoring him to his family, community, and the Chickasaw Nation.

We are in need of support from Governor Gavin Newsom and the public to bring awareness to this injustice.

We ask that you please sign this petition to gain the attention & support of the entire globe to free Orlando Watley.
