Innocent man falsely accused, brutally raped, twice left for dead, needs your help!

This petition had 1,506 supporters

I am submitting this petition on behalf of a good friend of mine who was falsely accused and convicted of a crime he didn't commit. He was sentenced to 14 years in prison in 2012. Since that time he has had his neck broken, resulting in ongoing grand mal seizures. While recovering from surgery he was brutally raped. Twice as a result of his seizures, he had to be resuscitated by other inmates, as prison medics and guards stood by and offered very little assistance.

In 2014, he filed a Habeas Corpus for unlawful imprisonment only to have his case sabotaged by prison officials and court clerks. On one occasion he had 33 pieces of outgoing legal mail confiscated by the prison superintendent who threatened that what he couldn't shred he would burn! He then filed a lawsuit for this, that is currently awaiting a decision by the 9th circuit in San Francisco. A decision is expected between March 1, 2018 and May 1, 2018.

This man put his life on the line in serving his country honorably as a decorated Navy veteran, now it’s our turn to do what we can to help him in his time of need, and hold these people in position of power accountable for their actions. If we are able to get enough signatures for this petition demanding action to be taken by the Governor of the State, or the President of the United States, this man can gain his freedom back that was taken away from him so cruelly.
