Islamic Leadership Institute (ILIA) started this petition to judge Bernhardt and

Robert Gerhold, also known as Bobby Ilyas Gerhold, is an innocent man who was wrongly convicted of the crime of an attempted burglary that he did not commit. Sign this petition to help set him free and give him a chance to be with his children and newly born grandchild. Bobby is a caring, intelligent, and faithful person who does not deserve to be incarcerated for a crime he didn’t commit.

The issue on hand is simple: he was proven innocent in 2016, and since then awaiting his release. Merely because of judicial bias, Judge Bernhardt has refused to release him claiming he violated terms of probation, although his probation officer disagrees, and his public defender has been prevented from attending the hearing. Robert has dealt with a biased judge who asked him to plead guilty, and the judge became furious when Bobby refused to plead falsely against himself when he did not do anything wrong. 

The family has obtained a lawyer for Bobby’s upcoming parole hearing in November 2021 because they firmly believe that he shouldn’t have to answer for a crime he did not commit, even after the victim outwardly stated in public court that Bobby was NOT the person who broke into his house. The family hopes that this will finally bring Bobby home to be surrounded by the love and peace of his family, and give him a chance to return the support and blessings he received over the years to the community served by the Islamic Leadership Institute of America.
