Release of my son, Torrean Buchanan, due to mistaken identity/wrongful conviction.

This petition had 1,442 supporters

Young male wrongfully convicted and sentenced in a case of mistaken identity at the age of 19, currently 26 years old serving prison time of minimum 12 years to 20 years. My son has never had any previous criminal background.  This isolated incident was a first time offense that he was wrongfully accused of by one woman that identified him and her husband at the same crime scene testified he did not see him. He is a Roseville High School graduate with an excellent academic background throughout his entire school years without never having discipline as little as detention. He also was a phenomenal football player in high school with a promising future for college, that was taken away in a flash. At this point, he still has a desire to finish college and become a successful business entrepreneur in accounting/finance. On a personal note, he has a strong background of family support, myself, his mother, who works at Third Judicial Circuit Court,  his father, whom is Executive Chef at Little Caesars Arena, grandparents, aunts, uncles and his 3 siblings who misses him so much.  Torrean and his supportive family, friends, and loved ones would like to be given an opportunity to become an upstanding citizen and share his  testimony to all wrongfully convicted individuals, that change is possible and leading a successful career is obtainable. If possible, we ask and plead to please grant a boot camp or any program that will allow Torrean, to have a second chance at freedom and becoming the man he wanted to be before it was stripped away from him 6 years ago. May God bless all and thanks for your time and consideration, Heartfully, 

Tamika Buchanan-Dancy, Mother of incarcerated son
