Summary of the case: Son was given sixty years ( for abduction and carjacking)
the sentence is to run concurrently, white boy says my son took his car, white boy and my son both were victims of drugs abuse, white boy used Estacy, JAmes used Crack cocaine. Mother asked for the most stiff sentence, while we were not given the option to say anything in my son defense.There were questions not asked of the victim. My son has maintained his innocence and have had no charges since he has been in prison. 5 1/2 years. He was committed to a max. secutrity some 8oo miles away, and becasue we have been involved to get laws changed, we were in the right place at the right time to speak to someone who had the authority to have my son moved to 1 hour away.He continues to appeal, and he continues to be denied. We are at a stage where we are pursuing a pardon from Gov. Kaine. Need some help in that arena and however else you can help would be greatly appreciated. Our Support Group mothers are also needing help.Thank you and I do hope we hear something back from you. Thank you; Lorrene Maynard

Summary of the case: My grandson who is now 20 yrs old is James Lee Rattler , his tdjc number is 01519307, he was convicted of capitol murder july 25th of this year. he did not kill the victim, his friend Qulan is the one that robbed a convience store clerk in 2005, but my grand son was at the scene when it happened. He was at the bus stop in front of the convience store waiting for the bus to go home with his friend Qualan. Qualan told him he was going to rob the store, my grand son told him he was crazy & he was not going to do anything like that. Qualan went into the store, while waiting on for the bus he heard a gun shot fromthe store & ran to the door, the door was locked but Qualan let him in and told him to grab the cash register, he got the cash register & started walking to Qualan's house, witness's saw him walking with the cash register down the street to Qaulan house. They arrested Qualan and he told them that my grandson was with him and my grand son was arrested. his court appt. lawyer was Brook Busby who never visited him or heard his side of the story for 2 years, she said he was guilty because he confessed to his part in the robbery, she would not set any hearings to get his case lowered since he did not go inside the store & because of his 53% intellectual score even though we told her he was in mentally challenged classes from 2nd grade thru high school. after being on his case doing nothing, we went to Judge Magnis court and gave his clerk a letter my grandson wrote reuesting her to be removed from his case, the judges clerk advised us she was a good lawyer, but the judge would call her to see what was going on, we did not hear anything from the court until she went before the judge in June of this year , without notifying us, to have herself removed from my grandsons case with his trial set for July 21, 2008. his new lawyer Brad Lollar had only 3 weeks to prepare for the capitol murder case,before the trial he had a hearing to have James so called confession throwed out because the detective violated his maranda rights, but the judge only throwed out the written version, not the video tape version, & Mr. Loller did not object & during the trial he did not cross examine any of the witnesses or call anyone to testify for my grandson except his mother and a mental retardation specialist. we hired a lawyer ms. sharita blacknaull but she is going to charge $25,000 just to represent my grandson, that does not include all the other charges we will have to pay, i make $11.00 an hour and a few of our family members said they will help, but they tell me that an appeal will take a year or 2. i will sell every thing i have and get 2 jobs to make sure my grandson is treated justly. i know he has to pay for his part in this crime, but he did not kill anyone. PLEASE HELP ME!!

Summary of the case: I am the woman that John McCain has in his commercial "ACCOUNTABLE" I was filmed with consent or even the knowledge that I was being filmed, when he walked up to me in Memphis @ the Dr. King 40th anniversary commemoration event. It gets worse,I and my family were all wearing Obama shirts and in the commercial that McCain approved, you can see the "O" and the flag from Obama logo.My constitutional right to privacy has been violated but I cannot find an Attorney in Republian Alabama, and some of the attorneys here have even gone as far as, saying"you should be honored that he featured you in his commercial,and I ask WHY? Iam not a republican,I'm not rich and I'm not white,I'm not his friendor his supporter.so why should I be happy about this commercial . I've been misrepresented for his advancement,not mine. This guy didn't even respect me or my candidate enough to ask me for permission to USE me in his AD. Anyone running for the highest office in the land should know better, than to do this.I know that if Obama had USED a white Republican,woman wearing a McCain Shirt i his commercials,not only would the republicans eat him up in the media, but that white republican womans husband would insist on having Obamas head.For violating or USING this white woman, So why should this white man get away with again. He's getting away with" PIMPIN PALIN" to get votes. I don't want to let him get away with taking advantage of my kindness and"PIMPIN" me too. My husband is furious with McCain the way that that white republican man would be,the sad part is that the anger that my husband and I share @ this ordeal has literally ruined our lives. Could you imagine how many lives this crass old man will ruin if he gets into office.Maybe this event will help open the publics eyes,and enlighten them, so that they will not vote for this nut.He's acting like this campaign is a game and its very sad that Obama has to compete with someone with such a lack of character and common sense. This guy McCain is clueless,cenial or just doesn't give a dam and that s not the making of a leader, especially a president. Thats the making of a Catastrophe.Thank you in advance for any assistance that you may be able to give me God will bless you all ,even more, for you are such a spark of hope and a blessing to others.

Summary of the case: Retrial Petition for Derrick R. Daniels On July 28, 2005 Derrick Daniels was arrested as a suspect in an overnight shooting. Upon arraignment Derrick was offered by the Prosecutorâ€™s Office a plea bargain which would have ended their case and assured them a victory. After refusing to plead guilty to Assault with a Deadly Weapon, the Prosecutorâ€™sâ€™ office accelerated the charges to include Attempted Murder although no evidence of specific intent was offered. During his second jury trial, Derrick Daniels was convicted of Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Attempted Murder charges on December 19th, 2007. Derrick was retried by a jury trial of 9 white men, 1 black male and 2 older black women. Derrick a black male of 36 years old, married with a 3 year old son was accused of this crime by a man of whom he has known over 10 years through mutual friends and never had any problems with, who refused at the onset to reveal the name of his assailant. But after the coaching of his brother who is a LAPD Officer and co-conspirator scamming individuals through business deals; realized Derrick had a record and named him as the attacker the next day in order to use information obtained from Derrick on the pretense of helping him grow his small business. The days preceding and after his arrest a Derrickâ€™s information was fraudulently used in an effort to open personal credit and business credit and bank accounts. The brother (an LAPD Officer) of the victim went the DMV in an effort to change the title on a car which they claim was the basis for this assault. Since the car was leased and the VIN number changed he was unsuccessful in his effort. Both the victim and his brother (an LAPD Officer) knew Derrick and his business partner had found out this information whereby stopping payment of a 75,000.00 check they were to received which anger them since their attempt to defraud these two men was averted. Witness information which would have exonerated Derrick was systematically dismissed making sure with the length of time it was taking for this case to go to trial it would be difficult to locate these witnesses. The incident was investigated by the West Los Angeles Police Dept. the very one the victims brother work for. Evidence taken at the scene, again which would have exonerated Derrick was never presented at trial and is missing. The two witnesses the Prosecutorâ€™s felt were favorable to them, still could not identify Derrick in trial nor line up. The Prosecutor upon coaching one witness after being caught in a lie asked the court what he was suppose to say. The District Attorney within ear shot of the family stated he knew his victim was lying but was acting at the direction of his boss. Derrick received 62 years to life.

ALL, Sunday night my first cousin Tony Edward Martin, Jr. was murdered by a police officer in Childersburg, AL. From the witnesses that were there it was unjustified. The cops came behind my cousinâ€™s car (his brother was in the car with him) and rammed them a couple of times. They eventually ended up hitting an apartment building. Because they were scared, my cousin said they got out of the car and started running. The police officer shot my cousin in the back of the head and killed him. No one knows why he pulled his weapon. My cousins were not harming him nor were they a threat. My uncle, his father is preparing for the funeral, as well as talking to a lawyer. We need help in getting this matter resolved and justice served. It makes no sense for a cop to shot an unarmed kid in the back of the head. NO SENSE. Has killing unarmed black men become the 21st century style of lynching? What is going on these days? I just want my family to have some peace of mind that my cousin's death will not be swept under the rug. I don't want the officer responsible to receive a pat on the back or a pass for killing another innocent black man. I don't want this seeming as if they won in getting one less N**** off of the streets. He was someone's son, someone's brother, someone's best friend, someone's cousin; he was somebody. He was a citizen who's natural born right to life was taken away by a shameless cop. And I say shameless because a couple of witnesses said he laughed. I am not sure. I just want some light shed, I want it investigated, I want the cop to undergo due process and receive the punishment due to him. What should I do?

Message: I notice a commercial from an attorney with a last name staring in Q. I file a discrimination suit against a major defense contractor for doing so they retaliated and now I am facing ten years in prison. My own criminal attorney has admitted that he is discussed and that I was the victim of retaliation and a major setup. He is a criminal attorney and doesnâ€™t know much about discrimination but he is sure there are grounds that support it. I have over 600 mails given to me by mistake and the court ruled that they are no longer privileged. These emails speak of destroying me and taking me out of business, I have spent all my financial resources in my defense of the criminal case, the first trial a mix jury with Hispanics, afro American and white finish as a miss trial. The second trial an all white jury found me guilty and we are appealing. The prosecutor kept this emails from being introduce in the first trial they got in as evidence. The prosecutor knew that if the jury saw these emails the outcome would have been less favorable to his prosecution. As part of my settlement with this defense contractor they promise to continue to engage in defaming my character, I lost my business and ended up in a mental hospital for three month. Today I am 100% disable due to the stress and an occurring illness from my tour in the military. Please help me or advice me where I can go. I even sent an email to Ohpra that went into deaf ears.
