Help Terrell Curry get Justice

To: Governor Jerry Brown in California
Terrell Curry’s story seems like something you would see in a movie, but his story, his struggle for justice can’t get any more real than this. This all began on October 24, 1998, some 14 years ago, where he got caught in the grips of the vicious unjust system determined to convict him for a crime he did not commit. Literally everyone involved in the process quietly conspired to shuffle him through and ensure that he was the one who answered for the manufactured crime without notice. Because of Terrell’s disability, the prosecutor had doubts about him being able to commit the crime the police officers alleged. The prosecutor secretly video recorded his movements in jail to see if he really was disabled. After several days of recording Terrell, it revealed his disability was real. The attorney his family hired even worked with the courts and prosecutor to further hinder and sabotage his defense. The attorney was fired and all the evidence was suppose to go straight to Terrell, instead, all the evidence and files were sent to the prosecutor and court for two months before Terrell got his hands on the evidence. Between the two months it took for him to get it, an important tape to prove his innocence was altered to further suppress the truth. They couldn’t allow for him to have that piece of evidence. In countless ways he was stymied by the system in an endless struggle for the truth. He has never given up and WE will continue to fight with him.
14 Years Falsely Incarcerated.
Below is a letter Shai Dune received from Terrell Curry. In his words:
What is equally unjust to the wrongful conviction is the amount of time I’ve been sentenced to serve, (2 Life terms, plus 45 years consecutively), which is excessive in light of the fact that I did not do it and no one was injured in any way in my case.
Many prisoners that have been convicted of murder have the opportunity to appear before the parole board with a sentence of 15-25 to Life terms. The parole board reviews these cases after a reasonable amount of time and determines if the person is ready for parole. Certain qualifications must be meet before this is done.
I have accomplished many of the same achievements as those prisoners who were parole. Yet, because of the sentencing scheme at the time I was convicted, I have no chance of going before a parole board to show my readiness for parole.
This is a black eye in the so called justice system. You would think a person who never hurt anyone would have more of a chance at parole than someone who was convicted of actually murder. I’m not against anyone who demonstrates maturity and who is “rehabilitated,” and released. Because everyone is redeemable. My issue is in the disparity in the laws that are suppose to be equal and just. This has not transpired in my case. Despite all the naysayers, people can change.
Below is the letter that Terrell wrote about his injustice and what has happened to him.
The prosecutor knew Terrell couldn’t have done the crime, so a 15 year deal was offered, which was refused because he wanted to stand for his innocence. Some people may say it wasn’t bright not to take the deal, but what’s done has happened & we are still seeking his freedom. He was innocent then & is still innocent today.
