"Loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free.

Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear."

Isaiah 58: 6-8. 


I am very passionate about this subject of those who are falsely accused ,

Our very own Lord and Savior was falsely accused and crucified.

One day I will create a Website for the falsely accused:

There are many men and women on the Internet links below who we

 must never forget are someone's father, mother

 husband, wife, son, or daughter,

brother, sister, uncle, aunt or friend who  have lost ten,

twenty or more years of their lives in prison being

falsely accused. Many who have been released, because of

being proven innocent from D.N.A. testing.

There are many wonderful organizations that will help people

who have been falsely accused and are now

serving time in prison.


Thanks to wonderful organizations like the "Innocent Project"

The world now knows there are many other cases where

people have been truly falsely accused

and have spent many years in prison.

 Thanks to God's blessings of new advanced DNA technology

 that can prove a persons innocence!


 Over 400 people who have been falsely accused

have been released from prison,

and 100 just from the "Innocence Project" alone!

and many other projects that are similar.


I was suppose to serve on jury duty last month

 but I obtained an extension because of my schedule.

 Anybody that serves on the jury should always have an open mind

 and a pure heart,

And we should only go only by the evidence and not be

 persuaded by our own personal feelings,

opinions and judgments.

God will bless you for it because you are truly blessed by the truth

and not cursed by lies.

"A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who pours out lies will perish."

Proverbs 19:9


You must be comfortable with your unique past

God has shaped my life

 My Teenage Rebel Days

God will Vindicate You

I have nothing to Hide

At the time of this writing there were over four hundred exonerees nationwide,

the numbers are much higher now.

Many of the most recent exonerations have been through the use of DNA evidence.


About the Exonerated  

Innocent and Forgotten

The exonerated are the increasing numbers of individuals in this country who have been convicted of crimes they did not commit, and manage to win release from prison after having proven their innocence. There are approximately four hundred exonerees nationwide. Many of the most recent exonerations have been through the use of DNA evidence. While there has been a significant attention surrounding the fact of wrongful conviction in this country, few Americans realize what awaits someone who has proven their innocence.

Traumatized by their Experience

A recent LAEP study of sixty exonerees nationwide confirmed that exonerees have considerable difficulty rebuilding their lives:

  • half were living with family members

  • two-thirds were not financially independent

  • one-third lost custody of their children as a result of their wrongful incarceration

  • at least a quarter suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder

Let Down by Society a Second Time

Most people do not realize that most states have no law providing compensation for an innocent person who wrongfully convicted for the time he or she spent in prison. In the states that do have compensation statutes, the amount is meager and the process to qualify for it is difficult for most exonerees to negotiate.

What re-entry services are available to parolees are not available to exonerees. In most instances, a conviction remains on the exonerees record, even after the individual has proven innocence, thereby making it difficult for the exoneree to get a job, rent an apartment, or get credit.


Convicted of: Rape and Kidnapping
State: California
Served: 10 years
Released: 2004
Compensated by State: NO
Current Status: Self-employed
Health Insurance: No

Then: Harsh and coercive interrogation tactics led a teenage victim to suggest her assailant was Peter Rose. A father of four with no history of violent crime or sexual assault, Rose was convicted of rape and kidnapping and sentenced to twenty-seven years in prison, leaving his own children without a father and without support. He always maintained his innocence. At one of his first court hearings in 1995, Rose told the court "If the DNA tests were back it would show that I'm not the one." After serving ten years in California's Mule Creek State Prison, DNA testing proved him right. Rose’s conviction was vacated and he was set free.

Now: Mr. Rose lives in Point Arena, a small coastal community in Northern California. The sole source of support for his four children and ailing mother, Mr. Rose works intermittently with his brother in commercial fishing. When not out on the water, Mr. Rose raises his four children, who were not allowed to visit him while he was incarcerated.

California is one of twenty states that provides for compensation of the wrongfully convicted. Mr. Rose is hoping his compensation application will be approved. He plans to use some of the money buy and renovate houses. His dream is to own a home of his own, one his children can always come back to.

Hometown: Point Arena, CA

Convicted of: Rape and Murder
State: Illinois
Served: 27 years
Released: 2003
Compensated by State: No
Current Status: Unemployed and housing with family
Health Insurance: No

Then: Gerald Ford was still the President when Michael Evans and another teenager were convicted of a rape and murder they knew nothing about. Each was 17 years old, and each was sentenced to 200 to 400 years in prison. After spending twenty-seven years in the Illinois prison system, DNA confirmed his innocence.

Now: Having left his South Side Chicago neighborhood as a teen, Mr. Evans returned as a middle-aged man. Although he had enrolled in prison programs to complete his high school diploma, he was unable to do so because the constant vigilance he maintained to protect his life in prison interfered with his studies. Currently living with his sister, Mr. Evans has yet to receive the meager compensation the state of Illinois offers an exoneree after twenty-seven years of imprisonment, Mr. Evans is looking for work. Imprisoned before he knew how to drive, he is in the process of completing driver's education so that he does not have to travel to remote job locations on public transportation. Thus far, his employment has been limited to the fast food industry.

Hometown: Chicago Illinois

Seeking: Driver's education, job training and employment, health insurance

Convicted of: Aggravated Rape
State: Louisiana
Served: 22 years
Released: 2003
Compensated by State: No
Current Status: Unemployed and unable to afford housing
Health Insurance: No

Then: In 1981, Calvin Willis was convicted and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole for a rape he did not have anything to do with. He spent the next twenty-two years in Louisiana's infamous Angola State Prison. The dedication of his family and long-time advocate Janet Gregory helped secure DNA testing of the physical evidence in the case. DNA testing excluded Mr. Willis as the perpetrator, and he was set free.

Now: When Calvin Willis finally went home, it was 2003 and home was his grandmother's house. Even if Mr. Willis qualifies under Louisiana's recently passed compensation law, he will receive no more than $150,000 for the 22 years he lost. In prison, Mr. Willis worked as a barber, but cannot continue to cut hair on the outside without a barber's license, which requires a high school degree. He has enrolled in GED test preparation classes, but the sporadic manual labor jobs he works to make ends meet got in the way. Mr. Willis is unemployed, and unable to cover his living expenses. He is currently enrolled in truck driving school.

Hometown: Shreveport, Louisiana

Seeking: Employment as a landscaper or truck driver, preferably with medical benefits.
