Ryan Hawkins started this petition to Superior Court of Fulton County Deputy Chief Judge T. Jackson Bedford, Jr and

Devonni Benton was sentenced to life plus 25 years in Atlanta, GA under the ruling of Judge Bedford and Paul Howard - A jury found 21-year-old Devonni Benton guilty of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm. But jurors found him not guilty of murder in connection to the death of Spelman student Jasmine Lynn on September 3, 2010.This has made a tremendous impact on his life and lives of his family members. The facilitating Judge Bedford is refusing to give Devonni Benton a New Trial. The eye witness who swore under oath in the court of law stated he looked the shooter in his face, Mr. Brandon Hall. Has been proven he was not in the vicinity in order to be able to identify the shooter. As of now, he still remains incarcerated but he and his family are actively attempting to get his story back in the public eye. Please help a YOUNG, BLACK MAN be allowed to live his life and be exonerated from a crime he never committed.
