Free The Innocent
In 2000 my brother Timothy Walton was charged with murder and convicted by a jury for this crime he did not commit. The real assailant Kevin Cherry confessed to this crime as well as was identified by one of the victims in this crime. The victims that identified the assailant Kevin Cherry was the girlfriend of the slain victim James Ford. She witnessed his murder. Kevin Cherry was charged and stood trial for this murder the trial ended with a hung jury. A short time later my brother and cousin Terrance Faulkner was tried by jury and convicted of this murder. My family members are spending the rest of their lives in prison for a crime they did not commit. after Kevin Cherry was released 2 days later he went out and committed another murder. He now is serving a life sentence in NYS D.O.C. If he was never released and convicted of the murdering of James Ford another victim may still be alive.
Please help my family members by signing this petition. I have in my possesion signed statements from the assailant and one of the victims of this crime. You would think that these facts in black and white would help my family memebers. At the time a Detective Kennedy working for the Albany Police Department was a corrupt officer, he no longer works for the department. A few convictions were over turned in other criminal cases because he coerced confessions and made individuals write statements saying they witnessed a crime by certain individuals when these so called witnesses had no clue what he was talking about. This information is public record.
