Art is currently incarcerated in the Wyoming State Penitentiary in Rawlins, WY. He was convicted of murder while serving a drug conviction. One of the inmates pulled a homemade weapon on him, he fought him, took over the weapon and defended himself. For a reduced sentence a fellow inmate testified against him in court. Art refused to take a plea deal because he knew what he did was in self defense. He knows he would be out by now if he would have taken that deal but still wants to fight for his innocence. His sister-in-laws father acquired a great lawyer and things were looking very good for Art but his sister-in-law has since divorced his brother therefore her father has withdrawn all fees he was paying for a lawyer.
I know something like this is a long shot for Art. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have started a Facebook page also called Friends of Art Johnson. I will put updates there as much as possible as I talk to him weekly.
