Petitioning Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe

Extradite imprisoned author Jens Soering to his native Germany.

As someone who has met and corresponded with German citizen Jens Soering and read numerous investigative articles on his blog and elsewhere, I believe this case cries out for justice. No DNA or other evidence links him to the crime he foolishly confessed to at age 20 (to prevent his girl friend from being convicted of murdering her parents), and he has already served 27 years of a life sentence. Outgoing Virginia Governor Kaine had agreed to return him to Germany in 2009, but incoming Governor McDonnell, in an unprecedented move, rescinded Kaine's action. Now 47, Jens doesn't deserve to die in prison.
