False Convictions

Our Broken Justice System

Welcome to My Blog:

False Convictions happen every day in this country. One crime that gets more and more false convictions is the crimes associated with children. While I am totally against people who takes advantage of children or anyone else for that matter. I am a victim of the system. I made this site to protect the children from abusers and make people aware that false convictions really do happen. They happen even if the Judge even says, “If you recall in his testimony, he testified to no sexual abuse.” as in my case. I hope that this site will be helpful to you in preventing a false conviction. Juries are not perfect and do not always make the right decision and in my case, did not take their duties seriously. Just convict and go home. There was lots of evidence that would have cleared me in the trial. Lies you could even see through. The trials occurred in Wake County, NC in the early 90’s. As Donald Trump points out, our system is rigged. Don’t believe it, see this site for yourself.

Don’t ever think that it could not happen to you because it can. My advice to you is to take extra precautions when dealing with children. If you are convicted, it will be next to impossible to find a real job ever and it will follow you for the rest of your life. Name on the Sex Offender Registry and public humiliation. I have had to live this lie as well as the child that has confessed to me that his own mother made him lie for the last 26 years. It has been hard on me and my family. Plus has broken us with legal fees in excess of over 100,000 dollars and have not cost the accusers one dime.

I feel very sorry for anyone that has gotten abused. I would like to see any perpetrator that takes advantage of a child brought to justice. Also, I would like to tell any child that has been abused to come forward and let people know. Also, if no one has abused you, don’t make up lies to get people in trouble. Always tell the truth. On the same token, you make a child lie, you should face the same charge you accused them of. There needs to be some kind of accountability here.

I am looking for someone or organization that will help me clear my name. It is very aggravating knowing you are innocent and have evidence to prove it. If you would like to help me get my name cleared, please email me. I have served everyday of my original sentence but have the desire to have my name cleared because I am really NOT GUILTY of anything. Please read my story to find out more.

Here the child confesses to me that his own mother made him lie and the State files Intimidation of a Witness charges to cover it up and uses the mother as the victim. The confession was on a audio tape to prove it. My lawyer did not present that to the jury, and a judge said he was effective. My attorney even said, he did not use it because he thought it was manufactured evidence and the confession took place when I was secreted in another room. That is not how it happened. My attorney made this up. The child actually apologized directly to my face. My lawyer was really not on my side and have not seen anything like this. I just can not sit back and remain silent anymore. I have to tell my story. I guarantee you have not seen a case like this. I am not mad with the children as they did not know any better. Hopefully, they are grown up and have a conscience. I hope they will tell the truth now and clear my name.

Hopefully this site will serve useful to others. It saddens me that any child would get abused. While you have people that actually abuse children, you have some people like myself, that were falsely accused and convicted.. I want my name cleared because I am completely innocent of these crimes. I have proof to back up what I am saying here is true. I even have the documents that were filed with the court. I hope that someone will help me in the mission of getting my name cleared. My rights for a retrial were hidden from me by the prosecution and my counsel. The Intimidation was a big part of my trial because it involved the confession from the child.

Any help you can give me is greatly appreciated. If you know of anyone that I can write to help me in my quest to get these convictions overturned, it will be greatly appreciated. Please email me at the address above. I will answer everyone that replies. I hope that you can help me bring the truth out and get justice. Thanks in advance for your support.

  1. I think this is a very worthy cause. I applaud your conviction for doing this and wish you all the best at getting justice!

  2. My husband has went through very much the same thing, I would love to talk with you. We are from Ohio. Here we have something called the Ohio innocence project. naybe there is something like that there also. we also are about $100,00. in debt for attorney fees and ect.

    1. I am sorry about your case. It is a shame that people are falsely accused and convicted. The child in my case apogized to my face saying he was sorry and his own mother made him lie. I was convicted and sent to prison even after the judge saw the Victim Impact statment posted on my site. I will fight for my innocence until my name is cleared.

    2. Wrongfully convicted in juvenile court in Cleveland. the OHio IP will only take cases if the person is still in prison.

  3. Hello,
    Please sign my petitions after you read this incredible case of injustice. You will see when you click on the Victim Impact and Confession tabs where my own attorney turned on me. They are http://www.falseconvictions.com. Click on the Petitions tab. I appreciate in advance all of your support and believing in my innocence.

    Thank you very much,

    Steve

  4. I know what you are going through, my son’s story is exactly as yours, at first, I thought this was a joke, cause, like I said, your story is my son’s story, I have also been fighting everyday for him, writs, motions, appeals, it takes money, lots of monies, to begin this journey to freedom, we went through the innocence project, wrongful convictions clinic of ohio, everywhere, and anywhere, we have gone, seeking justice, never give up, blessings.

  5. I wish we could do more then just talk about wrongful convictions.My son was convicted in Washington Co PA by a jury where the judge acted as the DA although we know he can ask questions of witness all his questions were damaging my son . A jury member on the first day rode up an elevator with the plaintiffs family and she also seen my son handcuffed and being placed in a squad car. All the evidence presented favored my son and he was still convicted .Any judges main duty is to make sure the law is being followed and questions are being answered .Our attorney when asked .Stated The judge is just asking questions of the witnesses that the DA did not ask. Well is that not prosecuting the case ?

    1. I am sorry your son was wrongfully convicted. Please sign my petition at http://www.justiceforstephen.com and I also have a couple more under the petitions tab on my site. My own lawyer hid evidence and trial dates so the confession from the child would not surface. I hope your son gets justice as it is wrong to be falsely convicted of something you would never do.

  6. my husband was wrongfully convicted by a juvenile back in 2013. the kid who accused my husband on something that never happened said what she did because my step daughter got grounded and from seeing this other kid. the “friend” said the incident happened in july of 2012 and she didn’t say or report anything until nov. 2012. she would come over all the time before during and after this alledged thing happened. the sad part was I was the witness to the allegations and really he never did anything to the kid or any kid for that matter. my husband was a very hard working man who provided for him, me, his daughter, his exes kids, and my kids. just bc somebody said it happened they believe it. if we all contact our state reps and have them look at the lack of the law of a he said she said convictions maye we can change sumthing. this is horrible for all the wrongly convicted!

    thank u for ur time

    1. I am so sorry. I will always be here for the wrongfully convicted. It is especially hard knowing that the accuser confessed to me that he was sorry and his own mother made him lie. My lawyer hid that information from the jury and my appealate lawyer pled me guilty without my consent to the intimidation charge. All done so the accusers confession would not surface. It is scary that a testimony from a child could cost you your life. Always protect yourself when around kids because you never know what parent would want to get back at you or make something up. In my situation, this boys mother THOUGHT I had a prior conviction because DSS told her that I did. It was a lie to get her to file the charges. I have remained silent for 20 years. I will never remain silent about this again. It has to be heard.

  7. Steve, thank you for speaking out about your case! This is what MUST happen for the system to change. I support you and Hope and Pray that you can clear your name.

  8. My 5 mo old son’s father is being falsely accused again. The first time his exgirlfriend accused him in revenge. Accused him of touching his daughter, he went to prison for 7 yrs. While he was there and after being released that woman attempted to make contact and so did the 13 yr old daughter. They confessed to lying saying they wanted him back. He moved on and fell in love with me. After a dispute with one of his 23 yr old neice and her husband over them doing cocaine and stealing. We found them doing this around us and asked them to leave. We then found out they were talking his mother into giving them percs and vicodines. We put a stop to it, for revenge they are now accussing my fiance of touching one of their children in june 2013 during a private camping trip. Mind you per other family members and posts online they teamed up with the first accuser. I know he is innocent because he was never left alone. Im so angry and helpless. My 5 mo old son and I are possibly going to lose him. Why is this happening we are good people and mind our own. I dont want my son to grow up with his father in prison over false accusations. The police never came to me and several other family members to question us. This was all a secret case until jan this year. How do we fight this? We also have no money we were living pay check to pay check. We all are devestated, and the difference this time is before he didnt have anyone to be a witness now he has my mom, my sisters, and myself. Is there any innocent projects that dont requore dna proof. Neither cases had physicall evidence pnly heresay and suggestibilty.

    1. I believe that you will have to hire a lawyer or have a lawyer appointed. Make sure that whatever you do, make sure that the lawyer believes in his innocence. As you can see in my case, my lawyer and the prosecution deliberately hid information that would have cleared my name. When it comes to child sex cases, it is very important to have good representation from the beginning. Make sure that all of your facts get presented. I have been dealing with this lie for the last 25 years and it does not seem that any innocence projects want to help me. Hearsay is all it takes to get a conviction. You do not need any evidence. In fact, the accuser in my case apologized and it did not even come out in court. Later, my counsel was ruled effective. Look at my site http://www.falseconvictions.com and look under the Victim Impact and Confession tabs.I don’t mean to scare you, I just want to say is to be prepared. Hope all works out for you. I am not a lawyer, I am just a victim of the system.

  9. My mother hired another firm for the appeal of the appeal. That firm cost my mother well over $250,000 and the court refused to hear his case.
    In regards to His wife, let me tell you a bit about her. His wife is on disability for what she claims is a lung infection she got while serving in the Navy. What she has is a two pack a day cigarette habit and apparently pot as well. When my brother was truck driving and handing all his money over to her, she sued the state for child support, claiming he had abandon them. She could never “handle them kids,” so Randy gave up truck driving and got a job at a factory where he was later injured.
    We found out she was telling all the churches and friends that they were so broke she couldn’t buy food. Several churches were allowing her to take from their pantry and she did the shopping for their church pantry so she was able to buy food for pennies a pound. Neighbors were always bringing them food and Randy just thought they were generous and always shared any fish or game he caught. Randy was naive to say the least.
    We also found out she was cleaning out their bank account and taking the money to her parents to deposit into a joint account she had with them. Six months before Randy was arrested she had the children’s payments switched from Randy’s disability to hers so the income never stopped when he was arrested. When my father died she sued his estate for my brother’s portion of what she believed was several million dollars. My mother got some insurance money at his death, but has spent nearly all of it on attorneys, motions, court & filing fees as well as $600 a month for food, phone and medications for my brother.

    The friend from NH, had returned to New Hampshire and when contacted for her interview she was waitressing and working at a strip bar. Her testimony, which was not heard in court included the statement that His daughter was saving herself for marriage. Maureen Floyd, Randy’s first attorney never even attempted to contact her. The prosecution had her out of state fast.

    His daughter married a black man, which leads one to believe her argument to be home schooled was a manipulation, she just wanted out of school and dropped out of school after Randy was taken from the home. Heathers new husband was in the military and moved to San Francisco. The marriage didn’t last, His daughter returned to Georgia, passed her GED and attended college for a time. She had a son out of wedlock and remarried. Last year her son drown under the care of a woman who had eleven children under the age of three in her care. The woman left the door to the pool unlocked as well as the gate, nor did she have the pool alarm turned on. His Heathers reaction, according to a newspaper interview and her Facebook page, was that it wasn’t the woman’s fault and they needed to leave her alone. When friends posted condolences on her Facebook page, His daughters reply was it was ok, she was due to give birth to a little girl in a couple of months and oh by the way she had new Sensa products available for sale. All pictures of the little boy have disappeared from her Facebook page, it’s like he never existed.
    Judge Mulhearn who tried Randy’s case retired from the bench and was assigned to probate court. A few years ago my mother and I went before him in a second attempt to get custody of my mentally impaired uncle. Judge Mulhearn didn’t recognize us, but chatted amiably until we asked about discussing the custody case for my uncle’s case. He told us there was no need, he always decided a case before he met with anyone and he already had the papers drawn up for us to sign.

  10. Randy, Nowill is my brother and he is serving time in a Georgia prison, convicted for sex crimes against his daughter. Having been a victim of rape at a young age, I was willing to be neutral and form no opinions until I saw the tape made when His daughter was interviewed.
    My brother and his ex-wife fit the profile outlined by “PROFILES OF PARENTS (OR OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS) FALSELY ACCUSED OF SEXUAL ABUSE on the website of Dr. Reena Sommer and Associates (http://www.false-allegations.com/parentprofile.html .) Randy adored His daughter, who clung him and insisted on sitting on his lap constantly. Randy injured his back and was on full disability, when His daughter jumped on his knee, Randy would turn white with agony. Randy’s relationship with his wife, was tolerance and dislike. His wife was viciously jealous of her daughter. On one occasion Randy came to visit us with his daughter and his youngest son after His wife and son, His wife’s first child had beaten His daughter to the floor and were kicking her. In fact, Randy often showed up at my parents’ home as His wife couldn’t “take no more of them kids.”

    When His daughter claimed she was being teased at school over a family friend and classmate of one of her brothers, a young black man, she begged to be home schooled again. So, Randy allowed her to enroll in home school classes. Then one day when His daughter was sixteen, a friend of their family in New Hampshire asked Randy if she could send her daughter, C, to live with them as she was in constant trouble. She was known to steal, smoke pot and had accused a man of molesting her after he refused buy her cigarettes. In about 2 weeks I understand, the two girls became constant companions but when they began getting into various trouble, Randy told them that C was returning to New Hampshire and His daughter was going back to public school. The next day the two girls were at the local public pool where one of my daughters worked as a life guard. My daughter, M saw the two of them crushing up pills and snorting them with a straw. They admitted to my daughter they were pain pills they had stolen from His wife. M called my brothers home for the girls to be picked up. Next they told M that, Randy, had been molesting her. While my brother was on the way to pick them up, My daughter called His wife. This section of the story is second hand as I was in the hospital recovering from a hiking accident.

    Randy was arrested with warrants which we have discovered were altered after he signed them. We have copies of both and you can see where letters from the original wording were cut off, very sloppy. My understanding is that it was a few days later that His daughter was interviewed. I can provide a copy of the interview, which convinced me that His daughter was lying. The accusations are hard to bear, but when you watch you see His daughter had no clue about sex and is leading the interviewer. For example she is asked what kinds of positions and after motioning for what positions meant, she is given an example like who was on top or from behind. His daughter’s answer to one question was at least once but not more than four or five times. That is not the answer of someone who claims the molestation went on for years. His daughter is giggly, not ashamed or embarrassed. His daughter was never examined for evidence of sexual activity only interviewed. Her at least once but not more than four or five times gave the investigator several felony counts against Randy. Each carrying a mandatory sentence and no chance for parole. He is eligible for release in 2032.
    Randy has since obtained copies of the warrants and found two copies of each warrant and it is evident the copy used in court was a poor photocopy as part of the letters of the original are seen. The original

    Shortly after Randy’s arrest, our father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. While he was alive my father and Randy went to the office of the best criminal attorney in Augusta, Georgia but he passed them to another attorney at his firm. They had many meetings with Maureen Floyd and paid a great deal of money. Randy, is a great hunter and very comfortable in the mountains and I say that because, Randy maintained his innocence and did not flee.
    My father passed away and a trial date was set. The day before trial I accompanied my mother and brother to Maureen Floyd’s office. I was shocked at how little she seemed to about the case and it was only after we were there an hour she admitted she had not seen His daughter’s tape, so she called the prosecutor’s office. It arrived after lunch and it was the first time any of us had seen it. The prosecution offered him a deal of 8 years and possible probation, which Randy refused as he was not guilty. (He has now been in prison for 15 years.)
    The next day we arrived at court for jury selection. His daughter arrived in a new car followed by His wife and her parents in a separate vehicle. His daughter sat behind the prosecutor playing hand games with her grandmother and giggling. She had her hair highlighted, a French tip manicure and bright makeup. It looked like life was good for His daughter.
    When the judge asked if anyone was unable to serve a woman stood up and said he had to be guilty or he wouldn’t be there. Randy’s attorney asked for a fresh jury pool, but was denied. I stayed in the courtroom to watch the proceedings and Randy’s fourteen witnesses were sequestered in room down the hall. The courthouse was new and at one point a cleaning lady approached my family and told them that the entire courthouse was wired and everything that was being said in there room was being listened to. She had just cleaned the “media room” and had listened to conversations they were having “so, they needed to be real careful about anything they said. Later, Randy, His attorney, Maureen Floyd and I were in a meeting room, when the trial in another courtroom could be heard coming over speakers in the room! Maureen ran off to find someone and tell them about the incident. When she returned Randy insisted he wanted to testify on his behalf, but Maureen Floyd insisted he didn’t and she had no intention of putting him on the stand. When the trial resumed, Randy insisted again, so Maureen Floyd told the court he was going to testify. The prosecutor immediately stood up and told the judge he had said he wasn’t going to testify.
    A year later a conviction was over turned after the state was sued for bugging the rooms and the scandal hit the papers.
    Every time we had a break Randy and I would have to remind Maureen Floyd of the facts in the case, every time it seemed like new information to Maureen Floyd. http://www.greenestreetlaw.com/About-Us/Maureen-O-Floyd.shtml When we asked her about calling Randy’s witnesses, she told us as long as she didn’t he could claim inadequate counsel and get a new trial. Often times she would object to the prosecutors questioning and the judge would reprimand the prosecutor and tell her if she did it again he would declare a mistrial. When it happened again, the judge said he changed his mind and don’t let it happen again. This happened several times. At the end of day one, Floyd told one of Randy’s witnesses that she had not gotten any sleep as her drunk husband was pounding on her door all night and she was preparing for a murder trial.

    All in all it was His daughter and His wife against Randy, with His daughter stating she didn’t “want him to go to jail or nothing.”

    The jury announced they were hung and the judge read them the Allen charge, with a twist. He told them he wasn’t going to allow a mistrial due to a hung jury and there was enough evidence for him to decide the case so go back and give a verdict. My daughter, was the babysitter for one of the jurors, unbeknownst to any of us. The man later told M that when the judge told them that, they decided that there was evidence they weren’t being told about so they decided he was guilty. Up to that point there were two women who insisted that he wouldn’t be at trial unless he was guilty. Randy was sentenced to serve consecutive terms and is not eligible for parole. Randy has served 15 years and is not eligible for release until 2032.

    His first appeals lawyer Gilliard was then engaged to handle Randy’s appeal. Only later did we find out that he never did any investigation as he assumed Maureen Floyd had. Maureen Floyd had not. Randy filed another appeal and His first appeals lawyer testified his council had been inadequate because he had made that assumption. Since that time His first appeals lawyer, Kirk Guilliard was arrested on drug charges and for an affair he had been having with a babysitter. After making the news in the newspaper, Television & talk radio the entire matter was sealed by the Superior Court in Richmond County, Georgia and he is still practicing law. http://georgia.arrests.org/Arrests/Kirk_Gilliard_8675424/

  11. My brother Randy pulled a cousin off me who was trying to rape me. Does that sound like someone who would molest an 11 year old?

  12. In Georgia as soon as there is an “out cry” from a minor the state becomes the victim. Even if the “minor” recants their testimony, there is nothing to be done; the state continues prosecution. Even there was “no evidence” in his case 2 women on the jury refused to vote not guilty because they believed the state had evidence” they were not sharing. When the judge refused to accept a hung jury he said “there is enough evidence in this case for me to decide, so go back and get me a verdict.”

  13. One of my best friends just got convicted of the same thing you did, his sister used their niece against him after their dad had died and she made a small fortune outta it, over 116000 dollars out of all of it. Charges were filed less than 3 weeks after the funeral service than a month later she filed a lawsuit that went after the life insurance money that thomas their dad left him. 2 months later he is arrested and charged with 1st degree rape, 1st degree sex offense with a child and indecent liberties with a child. She wins her civil suit by default and gets his money that way thats 20k right there for 2 checks one was hers and the other his. fast forward to feb of 2016, danny is convicted of first degree sex offense with a child and the other one he gets 20-25 years in prison, and here is the best part, EVERY WITNESS FOR THE DA got caught LYING on the stand by his attorney. His niece kept changing her story, even the cops got busted for feeding information to the snitch that claimed danny confessed to doing what he allegedly did, and even the snitch got busted lying. The jury still convicted the guy with all that coming out into the open, there were 6 women on that jury. Right now everything is riding on the appeal and we gotta make sure that the transcript going to his appellate defender hasnt been altered to show a different version of events and i set that in motion myself, by getting that info to my buddy in prison and as of right now we are at day 19 since he was convicted, we got time to catch this and prevent that DA from screwing up his ability to get this overturned. God on high heaven protect my best friend.

    1. Juries do not care about truth. In fact, in my case, the judge even said that when the detective was caught in a lie “As you recall, in his testimony, he did not testify to any sexual abuse” . Yet the jury convicted me. I will never understand it.
