Innocent Man Seeks Pardon
Editor's note: We all know that innocent people. in spite of a system designed to preserve the rights of the accused, are occasionally convicted, while the guilty go free. That appears to be the case, here.
A quick search revealed this man's case as being legitimate. The Indy Star reports a former Elk Heart County prosecutor as saying, "Justice demands that Mr. Cooper be pardoned."
The Chicago Tribune reports, "Cooper was wrongly imprisoned based on flawed police work, tainted witness identifications, an unreliable jailhouse snitch and a trial attorney who mishandled key DNA evidence. The witnesses and the snitch have recanted."
I've signed the petition; I hope you will, too.
