UPDATE: SPRING BREAK IS OVER, BACK TO BUSINESS OF EXONERATING KENNETH CLAIR !!!
Apr 4, 2016 — On February 20, 2016, I updated the petition with the following titled update.
“KENNETH CLAIR HEARING UPDATE: DEALMAKING AT IT’S FINEST ON NON-RELEVANT ISSUE !!!”
The update was to inform all of the supporters of this petition, that deals are made behind the back of defendants by attorneys, and these deals might sound good on the surface, but they put wrongfully accused and convicted inmates into Catch 22 situations. This warning was for Kenneth Clair and all of the Kenneth Clair’s out there that are innocent, to not be manipulated by their attorneys or anyone else to take any deal involving giving up their constitutional rights.
The specific deal that I was talking about was the deal to have Kenneth Clair resentenced, removing him from “death row” for the exchange for a 25 to life sentence with or without parole. This deal, whether or not the parole was granted is still an elaborate trap that will come back on anyone who takes this arrangement.
These parole deals force the inmate into confessing for a crime that he or she didn’t commit, the deals make it impossible for the inmate to ever be paroled. These deals put the inmate in a situation to be violated for any minor violation and sent back to prison. The Inmate is always serving his wrongful conviction for the rest of his life. Constitutional Rights, Retrials, Exonerations, and any other avenue to fight to overturn their wrongful convictions are lost forever…
I am attaching an actual reference to what I was talking about back on February 20, and you can see for yourself how Kenneth Clair and all of the other Kenneth Clair’s who take parole deals, instead of maintaining their innocence, end up.
I made it very clear in this update that this issue of resentencing should not have even been on the table, and that the only issue was finding the identity of the person that the DA’s office knows matched the crime scene DNA, who most likely committed the crime. We the supporters had a great conversation about this issue. I got a lot of feedback and comments from you, because we are all being educated together.
So if you are wrongfully convicted of a crime, know someone who is wrongfully convicted of a crime, please pass on this warning to them. Also, please comment, so that we can have another conversation regarding this issue. This public petition may be the only vessel to Mr. Clair's freedom, because there is a lot of gamesmanship being played in the legal forum.
Please continue to pass this petition to others the sign, and please continue to donate at cric.cjfordpi.org to Mr. Kenneth Clair’s defense campaign, and all of the other people that you know that are in the same or similar circumstances.
