Manuel Pacheco, Manny to his friends and family was convicted of a murder he did not commit. The murder took place in 1984 when he was 15 and the girl (Angela Wong) was 11 years old. Manny was not arrested until he was 35 years old and even though he was a child when the murder took place, he was tried in an adult court, that’s the first of many errors in his trial. Witnesses were coerced into changing their statements and all this is on record in court proceedings as you can read how stories changed from one day to another after being spoken to by investigating Detectives.
Most important is that there is DNA evidence that proves Manny did not commit the murder and we finally have a copy of the DNA report that shows that a hair that was found in Angela’s panties does not even belong to Manny, but to another gentlemen who had a previous record of assault. We even have paperwork that gives testimony from a cell mate where the man who’s DNA matches confessed to the murder and yet this man was never brought to justice and now walks free while Manny has been incarcerated for 17 years now on a 9 to Life sentence.
Now that we have the DNA evidence, we’ve reached out and have been able to land power attorney Bruce Barket. We also have stirred up the media and have the show Reasonable Doubt from the Discovery Network calling us to start to investigate this wrongful conviction to create an episode around Manny's case, also the Latin news show Primer Impacto is clammering for information they can broadcast about this miss-handling of justice. The New York Innocence Project has even signed on to take Manny’s case.
Everyone is going to learn why the Parole board has denied Manny his release 5 times since they are aware that he has a $30 - $100,000,000 lawsuit pending for wrongful incarceration and they are afraid to admit the truth. Instead asking him to plead guilty and be released “time-served”.
It’s for all these reasons we ask everyone to sign this petition to help tell the parole board that we will no longer stand for an innocent man to be locked up. Thank you for your support.
