Curtis L Price was falsely accused and unconstitutionally convicted of an armed robbery he had nothing to do with. Please sign this petition to exonerate Curtis Price of this false crime, so that he can finally receive justice after 14 years of being falsely imprisoned. The intent of this position is to ask the Governor of South Carolina to right the wrong done to an innocent man.
35 Years for 1 lb. of Marijuana!!! In 2003, Curtis Price was falsely accused of an armed robbery of an Applebee's he had never set foot in. All because his then girlfriend kept driving as he released several hand fulls of marijuana out the window during the chase. Had he known that the police were looking for an armed robbery suspect he would have gladly pulled over to clear up the mistaken identity. The Greenville P.D. made a huge error in pursuing the wrong man. To make matters worse, once they discovered the mix up, they brutalized him, instead of acknowledging that they had the wrong man. Beating & tasing him until he was unconscious. Curtis awoke to find himself stripped NAKED and handcuffed in the back of an ambulance on his way to the hospital! Curtis was arrested & indicted for armed robbery with a deadly weapon: a handgun, pointing a firearm & use of a weapon. The trial judge threw out the pointing a firearm, being that the State failed to introduce any weapon other than a plastic toy gun! So the failure to produce a firearm at trial should have given the judge grounds to dismiss the case but being that Curtis was a 6'3" dark-skinned Black male with dreadlocks whose girlfriend was a young white woman he was not allowed to get a fair trial. The State changed their story from an armed robbery with a DEADLY WEAPON to armed robbery with a toy gun! Without a Grand Jury, A Violation of Due Process! The indictment was altered at trial; a violation of the both constitutions (South Carolina & The United States). We The People must demand Justice be done in the form of a full pardon to begin with! This is another tragic case of racial profiling, Police Brutality, over sentencing, the decriminalization of Marijuana and corruption in high places. Your help is needed. Will you help free an innocent man who has endured 14yrs of torture? Your signature will make a difference. Help make this wrong done, right.
