Can you imagine being put into prison knowing that you are actually innocent? Can you imagine your mother paying $6000 to an attorney then finding out he has been disbarred and that you'll get your money back in payments of $20 each month? Well due to lies, corruption, and lack of justice this has happened to Colby, he has been incarcerated for over four years. The Court of Criminal Appeals read the letter we wrote to them and appointed an attorney to look into this matter. The appointed attorney saw that Colby should have never been given a prison sentence and asked for a resentencing hearing. The same judge who sent this young man to prison set the resentencing hearing for August 2019! That is over two years away! He was sentenced as if he was a habitual criminal but had no criminal history. He was given the maximum sentence for charges that did not exist. He is in a maximum security prison where the majority of the inmates are serving life sentences without parole and Colby has to try to survive every day because other inmates have nothing to lose if they kill him. He has been threatened along with his family. He has been assaulted and shanked but nothing was done. Please take a moment and read the facts. Please sign this petition, this young man is living a nightmare and fights to not give up because he knows he is innocent. At the very least, please pray for Colby. It is with sincere hearts that we beg for help, sign this petition to show faith in a fellow human being. The corruption in Morgan County Alabama has put him in prison with a 25 year sentence and won't look at their mistake for two more years and possibly let him out (it might make someone look bad). It seems that he could be released if someone with some common sense would look at his case - the facts are there and simple. President Trump we ask for your help because you have the wisdom to see Colby's case fairly, because you have the heart to reach out and give this man his life back, and because you have the power to take action and pardon him.
Colby Dwight Birdsong was involved with a woman who tried to ruin his life. She has a pattern through her relationships with others that seems to repeat itself. He became involved and they began to have altercations because she has a volatile temperament. She took out several protection from abuse orders but then she would contact him, pursue him, and spend time with him. This female was also involved in multiple relationships with people who were connected to members of law enforcement and made it difficult for Colby to get treated fairly. Getting him out of prison will give our community a good man to be our neighbor and friend, who will be a productive citizen.
This is our letter:
To the State of Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals
Reasons why we ask you to consider Colby Dwight Birdsong for an appeal on his case.
He is not guilty.
Poor representation by court appointed attorney.
The hired attorney was disbarred.
Colby's file was lost, when hired attorney's office was closed by the bar association.
Hired Attorney fled with all the fees he had been paid by Colby's family.
Court appointed attorney voiced anger toward Colby because he was reappointed after being fired by Colby.
A judge ruled that the protection orders were null and void.
The judge stated that the other Judge could not void the protection orders.
The plaintiff violated all the protection orders by contacting Colby and continuing to have a relationship with Colby.
Maximum sentencing was given although Colby had no prior criminal behavior.
The plaintiff has documented a history of mental illness and violent behavior.
Plaintiff had an influence on law enforcement officers involved in police reports to favor the plaintiff.
Witnesses were not called to testify at trial that were critical to Colby's defense.
A crucial witness was not allowed to speak in favor of Colby who would have shown that Colby was not guilty.
An eyewitness was not allowed to testify the whole truth.
Plaintiff perjured herself at trial.
One of the prosecution's witnesses perjured herself.
Evidence for the defense was not presented by a court-appointed attorney that was crucial for defense.
Plaintiff had adequate time to self-inflict alleged marks and wounds after grandparents left the scene and before law enforcement arrived at the scene because she was left alone at the scene.
Zip ties allegedly used to kidnap plaintiff were not present at the scene or presented at trial.
Photos of plaintiff's marks/wounds did not show who was in the photos.
A sworn affidavit from a witness was not presented that would have shown the plaintiff was not being honest and was threatening Colby and this witness.
Court appointed attorney told the witness with the affidavit that he did not need to be present at trial and then the Judge would not let court-appointed attorney admit into evidence the affidavit because the witness was not in the courtroom.
The rules during the trial were not followed by the prosecution preventing the defendant from being able to show he was not guilty.
The court-appointed appeals attorney displayed anger toward Sharon Jett and withdrew from the case without waiting for the deadline for Colby to send in the appeal letter.
