My name is Jarrod Spicer and I'm an inmate at the Hardeman County Correctional Facility in Whiteville,TN. I'm writing this to testify my innocence due to complete frustration and in mind humbling darkness asking for some compassionate help.  I have a wife, five children; the youngest one is five and four grandchildren. I had a business and two mortgages on my house and now our house is gone and my wife and children weep. I'm serving a twenty-five year sentence for something I didn't do and I'm hoping God will help me contact someone who might be able to help me prove it. I'm willing to volunteer for any new program, lie detector process, truth drug study, psychiatric procedures, physically or mentally hazardous to prove my innocence. You don't know how difficult it is to deal with this. This prison is "Hell on Earth." older inmates, like me, are abused and threatened almost daily by younger, stronger, criminally, knowledgeable inmates.  Sometimes something as simple as stepping out into the hallway becomes a hazardous endeavor. I saw one older gentleman killed when he was knocked to the concrete floor and split his head open; his name was Bill and he was my roommate and friend. The American justice system that most people are raised in like me, to always trust is broken. The promise that the truth will always prevail and that " you are innocent until proven guilty" is a bygone idea and now a farce due to corrupt officials, biased judges and law enforcement brutality.  I hope you get the opportunity to read "The Shack", by WM Paul Young in which he basically compares man's judgment to hate retaliation and greed versus God's Judgment to love-forgiveness and charity. "Once abolish the God and government becomes the God" which is a quote by GK Chesterton in "The Shack."  My story is that I was initially offered a plea deal for two years and plead reckless homicide. I even signed the paperwork but knew my innocence and backed out. They had my attorney offer me eight years @ 30, plead involuntary manslaughter or go to trial but once again I knew I was innocent and trusted American Justice but it was a mistake. I was represented by a high priced attorney in it just for the money. When I couldn't pay him, he basically gave me up to the DA. My nightmare at night is my attorney not asking for second opinion of the medical examiner who said "He couldn't determine the cause of death."  They did not get a second opinion cause my attorney said we couldn't afford one and then when asked for retrospectively by the appeals judge about why a second opinion was not gotten; cause the court would have helped; my attorney said he didn't know he could do that. Same para the victim was 77 years old and in court characterized as "A walking corpse" cause of the medical issues. He was even embalmed before the medical examiner did the "cause of death" investigation. Even after embalming, his body revealed massive dosage of hydrocodone and alcohol. Now I hope you my nightmare and the injustice of it all. It may sound frightening but it's all true and the victim appears to be ME, abandoned by a legal system with no remorse for mistakes and incarcerated by the "Tennessee Department of Corrections" where there are NO "Corrections or programs" to allow persons of good character and even better behavior to get some relief. 
My family grieves for me and I for them. I can't sleep at night knowing what I and they are missing. 
Please someone help me and my family if at all possible. GOD BLESS YOU!!  I have endured the temptation but yet my heart is free and so is my soul. 
Pastor Jarrod R. Spicer Sr.
