Dear Marsha Garst,
In 2011 you successfully had me removed from the honor wing where I lived and taken out of the dog program that I loved. Both of these I earned with good behavior.
You called Warden Hobbs after you found out that my family posted the letter I wrote you (click here) and some proof showing you obtained my conviction by nefarious means on the Commonwealth Coverup website.
Commonwealth Coverup is back and you can’t stop the public, those who voted you in office from knowing the truth about how you used altered, never tested, destroyed and fabricated evidence along with coerced and perjured testimony to win high profile convictions.
After my removal from the honor wing and dog program, you told the media to write about how convicted murders shouldn’t be allowed to be around dogs and have privileges such as living in an honor wing afforded to them. You told the media I was removed because I lied about being a dog handler. For those who believe what is published with no facts to prove otherwise you gain a loyal follower. It’s now my time to set the record straight! A copy of the dog agreement proving I was a part of the dog program is right here (click here). The fact that you can abuse your power to contact the warden of this prison and dictate what program I can be a part of, or where I can live is beyond comprehension and above your pay grade. It shows the lengths you’re willing to go preventing me from exposing the corrupt prosecutor that you are. You did these things to send a clear message that you can make the life for me in prison more unbearable than it already is.
Since 2011 I contemplated giving up on the idea that the truth would ever be told. Over the years I have read all about the cases you have won plastered all over the front page of the local newspaper and I recall feeling sick to my stomach as I read about the repeat offenders who lined up to testify for you and the statements made by those convicted whose words sounded eerily familiar to mine. The more I thought about moving forward I realized this isn’t just about my case anymore. It’s all about all those people convicted before and after me who also didn’t receive a fair trial. You sentenced some to death, a few still waiting to be executed and others like me waiting to die for offenses that by law were excusable, justified or never committed. You refuse to lose to the truth. You label those you convict as “cold blooded murderers” who don’t deserve a second chance to walk among society. How do you sleep at night or look in the mirror knowing people have been executed or are on death row or waiting to die because you can’t accept defeat?
I refuse to allow you to silence the truth any longer. The public has a right to know the indisputable facts. As a prosecutor, you get to tell your version of a story to the media and a jury. You slander the character of those you seek a conviction for, not letting the public make their own assessment. No more! I will be the voice and stand up for all of us, starting with my story, my truth in hopes of stopping you from destroying more lives and those who love us.
At the close of trial before the jury deliberated you stated to them “you must make a finding on facts, not emotion” yet you withheld the facts needed for them to make a true verdict. You had no right to deceive them and I can only hope they view this website and reach out to the powers above you and express themselves. We will both meet our maker one day. I have confessed my sins and asked for forgiveness. Have you?
