I find myself incarcerated for a crime that I did not commit, due to police malfeasance, prosecutorial misconduct, and ineffective assistance of counsel. I have an alibi! But my motion for new trial was denied because my appellate counsel wasn’t given enough time to prepare for the hearing, due to unnecessary delay in the court’s appointment of him. Now I must seek habeas corpus relief from the higher courts to prove my innocence.

I feel that “proper planning and preparation, prevent poor performance.” For this reason I have completed 3 correspondence courses in paralegal studies. This will better prepare me to present my innocence to the Court of Criminal appeals in Texas. The courses are through Blackstone Career Institute. I think that of all things I can do to help myself, this is by far the best for now and when I get out. However, there are other legal materials that I would love to have at my disposal as I wage this battle for my freedom, specifically legal books that I don’t have access to in here and must buy. This is what I most seek help with. On the other hand, I would also like to correspond with kind-hearted individuals who offer advice and words of encouragement.

My mother is the person who is in my corner at this time, she does so much to help me because she knows that I am innocent. But she can only do so much. She lost both of her kids at the same time. My little brother died 16 days after I was arrested for this offense. I am now her only living child, so this isn’t just about me. I need to be home with her as she grows into her golden years.

I need your help in my fight for justice so I can get home to my mother.
