Petition to Louisiana Governor, John Bel Edwards

FREE Corey Miller Justice has been served!!!

FREE Corey Miller Justice has been served!!! The justice system should be to protect the innocent and to imprison the guilty. The justice system has done Corey Miller wrong. Corey Miller was wrongly convicted due to his rap personality. The Louisiana supreme court have denied Corey Miller's appeals and a retrial. The Louisiana supreme court did the same thing to: Glenn Ford, he was wrongfully convicted in a Louisiana murder case. Glenn Ford left the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, La., in 2014. His conviction in a murder case was vacated after he spent more than 29 years on death row. He died less than two months after he was released. From untreated lung cancer while in prison in Angola!!! Corey Miller should not have to endure the same torture Glenn Ford went through. There are visible flaws in the Louisiana justice system. The death penalty need to be abolished. Errors, negligence and deliberate misconduct by prosecutors and criminal defense lawyers are the most pervasive cause of wrongful convictions in Louisiana. Court appointed lawyers caused, at least in part, 77% of the convictions in Louisiana . Please free a man that has been wrongfully convicted of a crime he did not commit. How can you convict a person of murder if there wasno evidence to convict Corey Miller. There was -NO GUN -NO D.N.A -NO EVIDENCE TO CONVICT But, this man is sitting in prison serving a life sentence while the real man who did this crime is out there running the streets free to commit other crimes. Please take a moment of your time and sign this petition and help Corey Miller be free. Corey need to come home to his family. So that he can enjoy his life with his family and be a father to his 3 daughters. Please overturn Corey Miller conviction he should not be locked up for a crime that he did not commit!!! What would you do if it was your family member was wrongfully convicted of a crime? Corey Miller need to be exonerated and released from prison and compensated for the wrongful conviction. He should not have to rot in prison like so many other men in Angola and like Glenn Ford. Corey Miller deserve to be heard and he should be released from prison!!!

Petition to Terry McAuliffe

Please Stop the April 25 Execution of Ivan Teleguz, an Innocent Man

The Commonwealth of Virginia plans to execute an innocent man, Ivan Teleguz, on April 25, 2017. We need to make sure Governor McAuliffe knows that there is too much evidence of Ivan’s innocence to allow this execution to go ahead. Please join the call for the Governor to intervene. The government’s case against Ivan was based on false evidence. Three men said that Ivan hired Stephanie’s killer. But two of those men have since admitted that they lied in court – and sworn under oath that Ivan was not involved. The third, Michael Hetrick, confessed to killing Stephanie. He was offered a deal that spared his own life in return for saying that Ivan hired him to commit the murder. The prosecutor coerced the witnesses. The witnesses have sworn under oath that they gave false testimony at trial because of threats from the prosecutor and promises she made to improve their sentences. The prosecution tried to influence the jury by saying Ivan was involved in a made-up murder. At trial, the prosecutor argued that Ivan should be sentenced to death because he was involved in another murder in Pennsylvania, and was highly dangerous. It was later revealed that the testimony about the murder and the prosecutor’s argument were completely made up—the murder never even happened. There is evidence that calls into question every part of the Commonwealth’s case against Ivan. There is too much doubt for Governor McAuliffe to allow this execution to go ahead. Please help make sure he knows that The Commonwealth is about to execute an innocent man. Please help save an innocent man. Join the call for Governor McAuliffe to intervene.

Petition to John Gee Edwards

"Right Evidence but Wrong Person," Free Brandon Dwight! Harrington

On April 12, 2012, A jury found Brandon Dwight Harrington guilty for the murder of Mamie Wright in Cordele, GA. He was charged with felony-murder predicated upon burglary, malice murder, felony-murder predicated on aggravated assault with a deadly weapon of a person over the age of 65, aggravated robbery for taking a phone from the immediate presence of  Mrs. Wright, burglary, for entering Mrs. Wright's home with the intent to commit a theft therein, possession of a firearm by a first offender probationer, and for possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, to wit, burglary and aggravated assault involving Mrs. Wright. Brandon was then sentenced to life without the possibility of parole for malice murder, a concurrent life sentence for armed robbery, and five consecutive years  each on the firearm possession charges. Brandon was subjected to many tests. Also there was evidence that was found at the crime scene that Brandon's DNA, Fingerprints, head hair and pubic hair was was tested against. A pubic hair that was recovered from a sock at the crime scene had a pubic hair on it that was inconsistent with Brandon's pubic hair. There was hair also found at the entry point, and it was tested against Brandon's hairs and came up inconsistent. The fingerprints that were recovered from the victim's birth certificate, piece of counter top, door from dresser, and a used check register excluded Brandon as the source of the latent prints from those items. A gunshot residue test was done on Brandon and had failed to reveal particles characteristic of GSR.  Even after all the evidence showed that he wasn't the one who murdered Mrs. Mamie Wright, Brandon was still sentence to this punishment. He went back before the same judge who wouldn't overturn his conviction because he didn't want to look as if he was bias, but did take back some of his life sentences leaving him with only two to fight. Now Brandon's case is at the Supreme Court because his right to remain silent was violated when he had repeated during the interrogation plenty of times that he "didn't want to talk anymore," and requested to be sent to the county jail if he couldn't go home and the State had failed to prove that he committed armed robbery. Not only am I doing this petition to free this innocent man but also to seek justice for the murder of Mrs. Mamie Wright and find the man who killed her. Please help me get this to the Supreme Court by signing this petition . This lady's killer is still walking around getting away with what he did to her. Please free Brandon and please help me find the man who is responsible for the death of Mrs. Wright so that her family can know the truth behind who really did murder her. Thank You.

FREE JUAN RODRIGUEZ - THE INNOCENT MAN PLEASE VACATE JUAN'S CONVICTION- SET HIM FREE

We Request You Vacate Juan Rodriguez's Conviction and Discharge Him From Custody.  Juan has been incarcerated since he was 17 years old, for a crime he did not commit. In June of 2004 Juan and his so called "friends" were at Juan's house getting ready to leave for a party. In front of Juan's house (The shooter) parked his car where he had a gun hidden in his trunk. Few min later a pick up truck was passing by and started to throw gang signs and yelling, few guys got into with (The shooter) who was in front of Juan's house, they ripped his chain and jumped back in the truck. The shooter pulled out a gun out of his trunk and begin to shoot... He killed a young man. (The shooter) disappeared from the scene. Being it was my husband's (Juan Rodriguez) house and that the gang members knew him, he got blamed for the shooting. There was no physical evidence, gun, or nothing else, besides one eye witness who said "he saw sparks coming out of Juan's hands". Police arrived within minutes! Unfortunately Juan's trail lawyer, did not bring out any witnesses that would help prove his innocence and in August of 2007 Juan got convicted of a 1st degree murder and got sentenced to 62 years in prison. He was just a juvenile when he got charged with the murder he DID NOT COMMIT. He has been incarcerated for almost 13 years now, and is still fighting strong to prove his innocence, while (The shooter) is out on the streets "living his life" . Juan completed all classes possible in Menard Correctional Center where is is housed and also got marry to me in January of 2016. He wants to be home with his family, please help us free Juan and bring the justice.  Let us not forget that for every innocent person in prison, there is a guilty one out walking our streets. We hope you will join us in Juan's fight for justice. Please SIGN AND SHARE.
