More About Joseph Allen

Dear Friend of Justice,

I got little sleep last night and I’m a bit groggy.

I had hoped that Joseph had somehow misunderstood the message from his attorney, because what he told me was so bizarre. But — alas — his awful news is true. The state of Ohio wants to send an innocent man back to prison, ostensibly because his incompetent lawyer neglected to file something in 1994. I suspect the real reason is to enable the prosecutors and their defenders to save face.

Here is a news story.

Here is the text of the decision about Joseph Allen.

Here is the Nancy Smith decision.

I sometimes envy those who have no conscience. I’m sure they sleep quite well at night.
