Thank you

I feel in the spirit of pure thanks let me just say from the core of my being. Thank you all who have stood with us, given of your time money prayers and spreading the word for now your son also Donovan M. Drayton. His light is bright his mind is clear he has no victim imprint on his being just stead fast and on top of his case as am I. We are back in court June 6th to get all transcripts which the DA has with out a doubt delayed since November of last year. We are going back to trial and I will keep you all posted. So Donovan just sits in Rikers coming up on 56 months but solid and strong in his faith and work many a holy man has been to jail. He sends his heart felt love to you all.

Pre-trial Update from Donovan’s Father

Let me say that they have been playing games with the transcripts for check it for 5 months as we don’t have 8gs to pay for them or a paid lawyer at this time. We have a 18b and that’s another story. The new date is June 6th and we are supposed to have all the files baring any more delay tactics by DA Clark and the homicide crew. Donovan did speak in the Court room as did I to put the record straight. We have had 4 paid lawyers over the 54 months and we Will be 56 months in June.
Still no bail but they are quick to talk about trial my friends. So sign Donovan’s petition donate go to www.4Donovan.info read listen watch learn and help us bring him home. Donovan does not sit in victim mode he is and has been proactive working on his case from the inside so lets do our part. Remember HE HAS NOT BEEN CONVICTED OF ANY CRIME AND WON AT TRIAL THE 1ST TIME THIS IS THE REASON FOR THEIR TREASON.

Prosecutorial Oversight: John Thompson and His Fight for justice


http://www.prosecutorialoversight.org/
“In 1984, John Thompson, a 22-year-old father of two, was wrongfully convicted of two separate crimes, a robbery and murder. While facing his seventh execution date, a private investigator discovered scientific evidence of Thompson’s innocence that had been concealed for 15 years by the New Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office. Thompson was eventually exonerated of both crimes and a jury awarded him $14 million, one million for each year he spent on death row. The state appealed and eventually the Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision in Connick v. Thompson ruled that the prosecutor’s office could not be held liable for their misdeeds.

This video tells the whole story of the investigation, John Thompson’s wrongful conviction and the struggle to prove his innocence. It is a harrowing story of just how close overzealous prosecutors came to ending one innocent man’s life and how little oversight there is preventing the same situation from occurring again.”
