To Whom It May Concern:                                                        10/10/16

 

            I recently read an article in the Houston Chronicle dated 08/18/16[1] stating that Neal Hampton Robbins was released from Montgomery County Jail based on House Bill 3724. This House Bill relates to the consideration of certain scientific evidence constituting the basis for an application for a writ of habeas corpus.{2} An excerpt from the article in the Houston Chronicle is as follows: “The ruling comes more than a year after the state’s highest court for criminal matters took up the issue of whether a state law that allows for new trials in cases where forensic science is flawed also covers mistakes by expert witnesses. The wrongful-conviction law was motivated in part by Robbins’ case, Wice said. ‘Neal’s case was really the benchmark,’ he said. ‘It’s the ultimate fail-safe mechanism to ensure that the law keeps up with science (Kragie and Ward, 2016).”{1} The included signatures of voting, tax-paying citizens, along with myself, are wondering why Nanon Williams’ (#1306434) case has not been reviewed under this House Bill.

            Nanon Williams was convicted of a crime he did not commit at the age of 17 and has been wrongfully imprisoned for the past 24 years. Since he has been locked up, Nanon has done nothing but excel and prove that he can be a contributing member to society. He has obtained his associate’s degree in Liberal Arts and Science from Trinity Valley Community College, completed a Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Sciences through the University of Houston-Clear Lake, and is now pursuing his Masters in Literature. Nanon has even enrolled in classes on how to become a peer instructor so he can learn how to continue to inspire those around him.

            Anyone that reads the story behind Nanon Williams’ case can see that he is not only innocent, but did not have a fair trial. Three different ballistic experts recanted their testimony, and under House Bill 3724, his case should be reviewed. We are simply asking for justice to be done and for someone to review his case. Three different judges have overturned Nanon's conviction, yet he is still incarcerated. His case is a prime example of how damaged our justice system really is.

 

Best regards,

Concerned voting, tax-paying citizens
