Justice

This week, a jury found Clarence Moses-El not guilty in a retrial after he spent 28 years in prison.

While Mr. Moses-El now has his freedom, he needs justice. This case is exactly why I sponsored a law that makes it possible for those who suffered wrongful convictions such as this to be compensated. While there is no amount of money that can make up for 28 years of lost freedom, this law recognized the iniquity of our criminal justice system and starts to right a wrong.

As we know, Clarence not only paid with most of his adult life by being wrongfully imprisoned, he also had to pay for his own exonerating evidence. Hasn't Mr. Moses-El paid enough?

Unfortunately, the process to get this money requires more lawyers and therefore legal fees. Please join me in urging our Attorney General to find this case meets the criteria for compensation and let's not makes Mr. Moses-El pay a dime more toward getting justice.

Thank you for standing for justice.

    Thank you, Dan for doing this! The AG needs to do the right thing, especially after Morrisey preceded with the second, malicious trial!
