• We all know that the judicial system in America, and specifically Ohio is crap! We all have been victimized, abused, and taken advantage of (in one way or another) by the same system that we trusted to protect us! What has happened to William can happen to anyone of us and unfortunately it has happened to thousands of others.
• William Pennington was wrongfully convicted in 2010 when he was only 17 years old for a murder that he did not commit. He was bond over to adult court and charged with murder based off of the false statement of another juvenile. In a time where literally every Lehrer we go our DNA can be detected, there was absolutely no physical evidence against William. How is it possible that it’s justice to convict a a young man of murder with no evidence. The same eye witness that was used to convict William has since come forward and admitted in a sworn affidavit that he fabricated his statement for his own motives. The evidence used to convict William is now no longer valid. And yet, he is still in prison on a life sentence. The justice system has failed William and thousands of other low income, inner city youths.
•What has happened to William Pennington is an example of the systematic injustice that has plagued our communities for centuries. Based off of the Ohio Innocence Project there are a suggested 2,000 wrongfully incarcerated men and women in the state of Ohio alone. The value of human life carries no weight in the hearts of the people that we have elected to serve us! SO JOIN US AND LET’S MAKE SOME NOISES
