Gregory Bartko started this petition to President Donald J. Trump Investigative journalists, conviction integrity units, and U.S. government officials.

Wrongful convictions are far more common than you think. There are many causes for this problem. Where prosecutors are only incentivized to win rather than follow their constitutional obligations, this trend will continue. If you agree that our system must hold these people accountable, support this petition. Judges must hold prosecutors accountable, but they often do not. The result is the withholding of favorable evidence, the suppression of facts showing that witnesses committed perjury, and many other forms of misconduct. In my own case, we have exposed the corruption used to secure my conviction, but no one (including judges reviewing my own case) will re-examine the corruption. No one wants to admit that these things happen. It is truly unbelievable and it can happen to you. If you want this to change, please sign and promote this petition.

I stood trial in federal court charged by a prosecutor who intentionally withheld an abundance of favorable evidence from my defense, including immunity agreements between the government and the key witness and his wife, who has since fully recanted his testimony, admitted that he perjured himself at my trial—all under oath. The witness has also corroborated much of the prosecutorial misconduct we’ve discovered. Documents we have obtained reflect that the lead prosecutor on my case filed a declaration with the court that included perjured statements denying that any promises were made to the key witness. These statements were false. I, in turn, received 23 years in prison, lost a vibrant legal career, and am forced to rebuild my life. Finally, although my conviction was affirmed on appeal, the court referred the misconduct to the U.S. Attorney General and the DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility but nothing has ever been done. These are NOT isolated examples of failures in our criminal justice system. If you believe something must be done to stop injustice of this nature, please sign and forward this petition. The more signatures betters the chances that change can happen. My clemency petition needs to get to President Trump!!!
