Who is Davontae Sanford? He is Detroit's Forgotten Child. Innocence raped in the grips of overzealous cops and a prosecutor who doesn't give a damn about justice or innocence. She wants Detroit to forget Davontae!! To ignore her great evil misdeeds and sweep the case under the carpet. And your silence has made it all possible Detroit. Until it happens to your child - of course. BUT she suffered a MAJOR defeat at the Michigan Court of Appeals when that court granted Davontae relief on every issue he raised but one; namely whether Private Investigator Linda Boris can testify as to the details of the murders that Vincent Smothers confided in her --as he has to CNN; the Associated Press; his attorney and last but not least to Detroit Homicide investigators. Davontae cross-appealed that issue at the Supreme court. Smothers wants to confess on the record to clear Davontae for the four murders he did not commit. What does Smothers have to gain by confessing to a crime that he knows will get him a mandatory life sentence? Nothing! But Kym Worthy has a lot to lose if he does. Millions of dollars in civil liability and her integrity (which isn't much) for WRONGFULLY convicting that young boy! And Detroit? You are okay with this? Well we can't wait for sleepers to wake up from a dream. Fortunately one appeals court made up of all conservative judges by the way ruled in Davontaes favor. The prosecutor appealed that decision to the Michigan Supreme Court where we are now in a,wait and see hold for the high court. I am cautiously optimistic however that given the fact the three judge panel who ruled in Davontaes favor were all conservatives the state high court which is majority conservative will deny Worthy's appeal. And then the ugly court battle will begin. She will NOT be able to stop Smothers from confessing on the record and convince the trial judge to sustain Davontaes convictions. There are many lawyers on both sides. Smothers will flip her case upside down and she knows it. Hence her reason for fighting to stop him. Treacherous and devious she is.Roberto Guzman
With the consent of the District Attorney, an Indiana County Judge today reversed the 1982 conviction of Lewis Fogle who has served more than 34 years for the murder of a 15-year-old girl. Recent DNA testing of newly discovered crime scene evidence excludes Fogle and points to an unidentified male as the likely perpetrator. Fogle was released from prison on an unsecured bond while the district attorney decides how to proceed with the case.
Next week, the West Virginia Supreme will hear arguments in the case of Innocence Project client Joseph Buffey, who is currently serving 70 to 100 years for a 2001 rape and robbery that DNA evidence proves he did not commit. Innocence Project attorneys will argue that Buffey’s conviction should be overturned. They will present evidence showing that in 2002 the prosecution violated Buffey’s constitutional rights by offering him a plea deal when, in fact, they possessed DNA results proving his innocence, but neglected to turn over that evidence to the defense.

LBN’s Bob Donley reports that Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Democratic candidate for president, has proposed legislation to end private prisons in the federal system. This may be an effort by Sanders to attract minority voters. He trails badly in that group. Polls show Hillary Clinton getting 66% of the black vote.
Last Friday, the Texas Forensic Science Commission voted unanimously to investigate the integrity and reliability of bite mark comparison evidence. The Commission’s vote followed a written complaint and oral presentation by the Innocence Project’s Strategic Litigation department, which outlined the dearth of scientific support for bite mark comparisons and detailed some of the many miscarriages of justice resulting from the technique’s use.
