Urge and even lean on a few people for them to click on the 'donate' button for Nireekshana. I have always given time and thought into many people's projects, now is the time for all good people to stand up and to be seen to be counted upon. I refuse to accept that my 'friends' cannot spare even £1.25/$2 a week to support this cause.

Let me formally introduce myself, my name is Elijah Joubert, and I have been on Texas death row since 13th January 2005, for a capital murder offence, I DID NOT commit, yes you read it right, I did not commit the crime.

To save money, Texas prison officials have stopped serving three meals a day to prisoners on the weekends. This is inhumane and prisoners should be given adequate nutrition. Standards adopted by the American Correctional Association recommend that adult prisons serve three meals per day and does not state that variations of these standards can be implemented every weekend or as a cost-cutting measure. Additionally, Texas state law requires that county inmates be fed “three times in any 24-hour period." Currently about 23,000 inmates in 36 prisons are eating two meals a day on Saturdays and Sundays. There are other ways to cut costs that do not involve risking the health of human beings just because they are in prison. The Texas prison system should be evaluating why so many people are in prison and if they really need to be there at all.
A former prosecutor who helped send the wrong man to prison for nearly 25 years in the beating death of his wife says he doesn't believe he hid evidence in court that would have indicated the man's innocence.
I am the real life proverbial case falling through the cracks.
My trial lawyer was a former prosecutor with no death penalty defense experience.
There was no investigation, no defense and no mitigation presented. My penalty phase lasted 30 minutes. On appeal, I've been represented by CCR (Capital Collateral Representative), a State funded agency of appellate lawyers. They are overloaded, inexperienced and have a high turnover rate. I have been passed from one lawyer to the next like a bad cold. I am not a disgruntled inmate, just an innocent man trying to find competent appellate counsel. Issues have been improperly raised, missed, misrepresented, never fully developed or procedurally barred. I need help desperately! I have been ignored by CCR and have watched issues after issue get squandered due to their incompetence. View more at
