SUMMARY ABOUT ME
I am known as United States Death Row Exoneree 138. I spent 18 ½ years behind bars; 16 of these years in solitary confinement and 12 years of my sentence on death row. I had 2 slated execution dates – for a horrific crime I didn’t commit – the 1992 brutal murders of six people, four of them children, in Somerville, Texas.
In October 2010, an incredible turn of events took place. All charges against me were dropped and I was set free. Prosecutors reviewing the case found not only that I was innocent, but that then prosecuting attorney Charles Sebesta had engaged in numerous acts of prosecutorial misconduct. Just like that, my life was given back to me.
T oday I can say that I have turned this terrible tragedy in my life into an amazing triumph. I travel around the country and the world enlightening politicians, criminal justice reform organizations, law students, and the general public about the injustices of our system and our need for comprehensive criminal justice reform.
I am an accomplished motivational speaker, community advocate, and consultant in both legal and criminal justice systems. I am also the founder of a non-profit to help advocate for others, a prominent activist with the ACLU and other organizations, and I sit on the advisory Board of the TCADP and the Houston Forensic Science Center.
