This project has been ongoing for over 10 years and it required many breaks and gigs and gigs of research. The subject isn't easy but it is important in my view. Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to drop me a line.

One thought on “Ohio Innocence Project Nets Another Triple Win; Defendants to Be Freed After 18 Years in Prison”

  1. And once again, the government criminals who imprisoned their victim get away with it without being held accountable.

    They usually claim, “well, those involved have been retired for some years now.”

    Well, well, well.

    Track them down and revoke their public pensions. They committed a crime against the public and against their victim. They need to be held accountable and retirement isn’t a legal shield against prosecution for their crime.

    The arresting cops, the prosecutor, and the presiding judge(s) need to be prosecuted. They engaged in a CRIME against the public.
