INNOCENT MAN SENTENCED TO LIFE PLUS 20 YEARS, STILL IN PRISON AFTER 18 YEARS. 

   Peter Adams was arrested on November 21, 2001, charged with first-degree murder and gun charges esteeming from the murder of a white man in Baltimore City on December 16, 1998. Three years after the murder took place, Leon Wilkerson, who was from the same neighborhood as Peter, which is where the victim was killed, was arrested for drugs. To secure bail, Wilkerson gave a statement to homicide detectives indicating Peter as the person who killed the victim.

   Although Wilkerson wrote a letter to his attorney one month prior to Peter's trial, informing him that he did not really eyewitness Peter do anything, he would still testify, the state still chose to try Peter for the murder. There wasn't any physical evidence linking Peter to the murder. In fact, none of the fingerprints taken from the crime scene matched Peter's, and despite this, along with (3) alibi witnesses testifying that Peter was in the house with them at the time of the murder, Peter was convicted of first-degree murder, gun charges, and sentenced to LIFE plus 20 years.

   During the trial, Peter's attorney asked the detective on the stand if anyone else came forward with information regarding this murder, to which the detective testified "NO". However, 8 years after the trial, Peter filed a petition to receive a copy of his homicide file, where he came across several notes taken by the detective who testified that no one else came forward with information. These notes not only contradicted the State's theory at trial, but they also cleared Peter as the person who killed the victim. These notes were never turned over to the defense prior to trial. 

   Peter has maintained his innocence since day one! He even declined the opportunity to plead guilty and receive 10 years, because he did not want to plead guilty to a crime that he did not commit! He has been robbed of 18 years with his children and family. We are asking for your signature in support of justice as we ask the courts to overturn the conviction of this innocent man Peter Adams and release him from prison.

Sincerely,

The Family of Peter Adams
