Since the early 1990's the Juvenile Justice Laws in the US has increasingly become more and nore harsh, retributive and irresponsible. It progressively became more common for Juveniles to suffer incarceration as punishment and far more easier for juveniles to be transferred to the Adult Criminal Justice System, where they will be held to an Adult Intellectual Standard, recieve adult penalties and be incarcerated in adult prisons.

67 years for Justice of a wrongfully convicted child, everybody should know the name of George Stinney Jnr, the horrific act of sending a child to the electric chair should be on everybody's conscience, yet in our modern times, children continue to be tried/sentenced/incarcerated as adults, as is the case of Davontae Sanford, both boys 14 years old when arrested/tried and sentenced, one to death by execution the other by Incarceration, you may believe it is too late to change the fate of George Stinney Jnr, but it's not too late to change the fate of Davontae Sanford.

GET FREE OR DIE TRYING SINCE 98 LEON BENSON REACHING THROUGH THE CRACKS OF THE JUSTICE SYSTEM! My name is Leon Benson and I am an African American man, who has been an innocent prisoner in the state of Indiana struggling to obtain my over due exoneration the past 12 years with slow progress. I am falsely convicted of the crime of murder. The reason I say "falsely" opposed to "wrongly" convicted is due to the fact "wrongly convicted people" can still be guilty of their crime, but there exists a technicality in the legal trial process (i.e. basically,the state went about the wrong way to convict them, which is wrong according to the U.S. Constitution, because it states all individuals must receive a fair trial)but to be falsely convicted means, the person is absolutely innocent of the crime they were convicted of - which, there were obvious technicalities in their legal trial process - but those falsely convicted are actually & factually innocent.

The sworn affidavit by Vincent Smothers was filed last week by a lawyer for Davontae Sanford, who at age 15 pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. Sanford, now 19, insists his own confession was false, and he has struggled to have his conviction thrown out.
