Larry Matthew Puckett
"Matt Puckett was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to death in Harrison County, Mississippi for the death of a Mississippi woman. The clothing he was wearing when he was captured tested negative for human blood. There was no evidence of semen on the victim's body, and none of the hairs collected from the victim's body and the carpet where she was found matched Puckett’s. After a remand to the trial court for a hearing on whether the prosecution violated the Equal Protection Clause when it struck every African American from the pool of prospective jurors, the Mississippi Supreme Court affirmed Mr. Puckett’s conviction and sentence, and later denied his request for post-conviction relief. Mr. Puckett then sought federal habeas corpus relief in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi, raising challenges to the prosecutors’ conduct during jury selection, their use of Mr. Puckett’s post-arrest silence against him at trial, and several other issues. The district court denied relief."
Please help us save an innocent man's life. His time is running out!
