Nautica Dennis started this petition to Senator Cory A. Booker and

Dewan Dennis is a spiritually reformed gang leader. In 2007 he was wrongfully convicted of arson in which 3 individuals lost their lives. Dewan is a licensed minister and obtained his certification as a teacher assistant through Learning Volunteers Of America. He was also the chair of the re-entry committee for the N.A.A.C.P (prison branch) in 2010. When Dewan isn't preaching the gospel during Sunday Service and teaching bible study during the week, he's mentoring hundreds of ex-gang members. As husband and father, it is the love of family that keeps him grounded. Currently, Dewan is enrolled in bible college and seminary. In which he is seeking to obtain his doctorate degree in theology. Prior to Dewan's incarceration, he was employed in the music business and managed by Blazzin Multi Media. His career as a rapper looked promising. Performing and opening up shows for 50 Cent and G-Unit, Cuban Links, Fat Joe, and the Terror Squad just to name a few. In the summer of 2005, he was slated to attend the music/film festivals in New Orleans LA. However, Dewan's career and life as he knew it came to an abrupt end. August 20 2005 Dewan was charged for allegedly ordering the firebombing of the home of Rashid Glover. During the course of the fire, 3 individuals died. From the very beginning, Dewan has always claimed his innocence. The case against Dewan was trialed solely on a conspiracy theory. The prosecutor in this case claimed Dewan as head of the BHB in Trenton NJ has given his countenance to the arson. The only so-called evidence of a conspiratorial agreement presented at trial by the state was a testimony of a co-defendant which was uncorroborated and lacked the independent proof which was needed to legally be presented in front of a jury. However, the state was allowed to back door this testimony in the present or at trial. The state law and NJ rules of evidence prohibit judges from this type of practice. To familiarize yourself with this case law visit nexislexis.com and type in State V. Phelps, 96 NJ 500, 508(1984). Dewan believes that the local authorities made a rush of judgment and instead of seeking justice in his case the prosecutor's motives were driven by the thirst to obtain a conviction. Ultimately an innocent man was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to two life terms. We need your support, so we can obtain justice for Dewan Dennis. Please sign and share the petition.
