Free Brandon Woodruff From Prison
In October of 2005, Norma and Dennis Woodruff were brutally murdered in their Royse City, Texas home. In March of 2009, their son Brandon Woodruff was convicted in a small homophobic East Texas Courthouse led by corrupt prosecutors who willfully and intentionally violated his Constitutional rights.
We are not just trying to get Brandon out on a "technicality", but rather trying to free him from prison because he is truly innocent, and has been in prison for almost 12 years now. We are working to get the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals to reopen the case and examine the lack of evidence which will set Brandon free. Once they do that, we feel they will realize what we all know -- he did not commit this crime.
For background on the case and to read all about it, please visit www.FreeBrandon.org Thank you for your support.

Honorable Sharon Keller
I am petitioning you on behalf of Brandon Woodruff. In November of 2005, he was arrested for murdering both of his parents in their Royse City home. He was convicted in 2009 by what can only be described as a lackluster investigation and a prosecution hell-bent to convict him, and not interested in the truth.
I believe wholeheartedly in Brandon's innocence and am requesting that you reopen his case and review the lack of evidence used to convict him. It is my belief that the prosecutors used a tactic of character assassination, rather than real evidence to secure a conviction. I feel that if you reopen the case and review all of the information, you will also see that there was not enough actual evidence to allow an impartial juror to find Brandon guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
Furthermore, I believe that not only did the State not meet its burden of "Proof Beyond a Reasonable Doubt", but once you review the case you will see that he is actually innocent of this crime and did not commit these murders.
I fervently urge you to release Brandon from prison and let this innocent person live the rest of his natural life free from the Criminal Justice system that has so violently failed him.
