Wallace Gardner Jr. was incarcerated in 2004 and is serving a life sentence for a crime that he did not commit. 

“Hello, world. My name is Wallace Gardner Jr. I am from North Little Rock, Ar...I've been incarcerated for a crime I didn't commit. I was literally at the wrong place at the wrong time. My life took a dramatic turn. Soon as I realized the homicide detectives weren't going to release me, I just told them to book me into the county jail without saying another word.

On September 29, 2004, a misled jury found me guilty without proof of evidence of testimony, any witnesses, or any testimonies of any accomplices. In the state of Arkansas if you are found guilty during a trial for a capital murder it's an automatic life sentence. I've been fighting with my mind ever since! I've shared that because it's the truth.”

He was convicted based on the testimony of an accomplice whose story changed multiple times and a witness that “gave several different descriptions about the person and said several different times that he didn't know the person, never saw their face, many different things that caused him to question the identity.” The accomplice also stated that he saw a white man holding a gun, not Wallace. “Also, I would add that there's no showing that this was committed in the course or in furtherance of an aggravated robbery. There's been no showing of anything taken no money, no drugs taken.“

There is no sufficient evidence to support Gardner’s conviction and he has been incarcerated since 2004, 16 years for a crime he did not commit. Sign this petition and help open the case of Wallace Gardner Jr. to bring him justice. This is the type of justice that this movement is about. Innocent until proven guilty right? This case, like many others, was handled the other way around. As quoted by the Arkansas court of judges, "Securing the public’s trust in our judicial system is fundamental to our democracy." Please, take a second look at this case.
