The Fundraiser

John is in the middle of appealing his conviction on the federal level, one that has already taken over 10 years of his life as an innocent man in prison. Knowing that only 3-4% of appeals ever make it past the procedural barriers for a retrial, we have hired experts to discover new evidence in his case to present back at the State level: a Digital Forensics expert and a Private Investigator. Legal action takes money—lots of it— and our funds are becoming exhausted, so we are trying to raise $25,000 to continue fighting this incredibly unjust conviction. I hope you will help us!

Please read John’s story to learn more about this case and share his Updates on this website so together we can help bring this Army Ranger veteran home! Then if you believe in John’s innocence and his deserving of a new trial like we do, you can choose a donation below to make your gift.

Also, take a moment to sign our petition to call on the Governor of KY to re-open this case!

Thank you so much for giving — and for caring and sharing!

      Hey Gerald–just writing John and showing him that he hasn’t been forgotten is a great help–and please share his story, his website and the Letter to the Brothers that I sent you. He needs to be surrounded by support. He’s really at a new low and just needs a shot of love.
      thank you!

    Happy Birthday, John!
    May you find a moment’s respite from the darkness.
    I can’t help but think it’s just a matter of time before light shines in there for all to see!
