O Box 9
Innocent prisoner, seeks pro-bono lawyer or any legal help that could be
In year 1990, I was convicted of a murder that I had absolutely no
involvement. And was sentenced to 25-Life. The prosecutions main witness was
arrested for attempted murder, in a separate case of her own. However, her
attempted murder case was dropped in exchange for her testimony against me.
In year 2000, the same prosecutions main witness came forth and told the
truth in a notarized sworn declaration. I appealed it to the Superior Court
in which I was convicted (Van Nuys). I was granted an Evidentiary Hearing.
Under oath in front of a judge, the same witness that testified against me,
now testified for me. She told the judge that she was forced and coerced to
testify against me. She said the detectives threatened to give her life on
her own case and take away her child if she didn't say what they wanted her
None of this was disputed at the Evidentiary Hearing. However, my petition
was still denied.
I have all transcripts and more.
