MI's Attorney General Fights Freeman's Freedom

billschuette2We continue to seek petition signatures for the Governor’s executive clemency based on Freeman’s actual innocence and his poor health. In order to sign up, please click on Change.org and share with others. A special "thank you" to those who have already signed.

Freeman has one other hope besides executive clemency (which the petition is about). It is one last appeal (called a habeas) before the Federal Court. It will take months or even a year or more to be ruled upon. But on that score, we just got discouraging news, which makes executive clemency that much more important. We have recently learned that Bill Schuette’s Attorney General's office is fighting Freeman’s habeas appeal. (The AG is also fighting exonerees from getting their just compensation, but that is another story.) That office first said it would examine Freeman’s actual innocence but then changed its mind and did not review the abundance of evidence that he was not connected with the murder in any way.

The sad fact is that the AG does not want to reveal or highlight the documented misconduct used to convict an innocent man.

Dave Sanders on the Request to Pardon Fred Freeman

Larry Spruill of WDIV-TV, Channel 4 in Detroit, interviews David Sanders of Proving Innocence about the application requesting Gov. Rick Snyder to pardon Fred Freeman.

An Interview with Freeman's Alibi - Michelle Woodworth

This interview of Michelle Woodworth was filmed about a month ago. It is an engaging description of Michelle being with Fred 450 miles away when the murder took place and the subsequent treatment of her by law enforcement. We at Proving Innocence continue to be outraged at this sham of a murder conviction, a conviction which has now robbed Fred of 31 years of his life! How do you respond to this 8 1/2 minute interview?

For Those Desiring PI to look at Your Case

 

At this point in our development, PI is only taking on cases in cooperation with other innocence projects. If you have been wrongfully convicted and your case involves DNA evidence, we recommend you contact the Cooley Innocence Project at Western Michigan Cooley Law School. If your case does not involve DNA, please contact the Michigan Innocence Clinic at the University of Michigan Law School. A third member of the Innocence Network is SADO, the State Appelate Defense Organization. For cases outside of Michigan, here is a list of innocence projects by state.
