Text of Petition:
To: Honorable Judge Elizabeth Ann Starrs
cc: Gov. Hickenlooper, Mayor Hancock, District Attorney Morrissey,
Clarence Moses-El has been convicted of a crime that he did not commit. He has asserted his innocence from the very beginning and is in prison based on no more than a dream. He has asked all along that the DNA evidence involved with his case be tested. After winning a court order for the evidence to be tested, the evidence, which was in a box marked, “DO NOT DESTROY,” was thrown into a dumpster.
Moses-El was denied the right to a new trial based on a Supreme Court decision, which determined that the defendant must prove “bad faith,” on the prosecution’s part when the evidence is destroyed, something difficult if not impossible to prove.
The three people originally identified as possibly being responsible for the rape for which Moses-El was convicted, according to the victim, were “LC, Earl, and Darnell.“ This appeared in police reports and trial transcripts. L.C. Jackson, one of the three, who is serving a prison sentence for rape of a 9-year-old and her mother, recently confessed to the crime. In a letter asking that Moses-El send his attorneys to interview him, Jackson says, “I really don’t know what to say to you. But let’s start by bringing what was done in the dark into the light. I have a lot on my heart.”
Despite the discarded evidence, the confession and the victim’s original statement, District Attorney. Mitch Morrissey has refused to free Clarence Moses-El.
One day in prison for an innocent man is too much; 27 years constitutes cruel and unusual punishment.
It is time for Clarence Moses-El to be set free.
I urge you to take action and do what is right and just. Free Clarence Moses-El.
