100 years in prison while there is evidence of innocence: the result of a broken criminal justice system

Update posted by Marian Bultman on behalf of Vincent Simmons On Nov 10, 2021

Vincent had an interview with Jason Flom from the Wrongful Conviction and his lawyer Justin Bonus. They say: I think we - at Wrongful Conviction - have all come to the conclusion that this is the worst case that we've ever heard, which is saying a lot.

FINALLY SOME JUSTICE AFTER 44 YEARS:

For the second time in a row, the attorney for Vincent Simmons scored a "win" in his efforts to overturn a 100-year prison sentence.

12th Judicial District Judge William "Billy" Bennett presided over a hearing Friday morning in which Simmons' attorney Justin Bonus had asked that District Attorney Charles Riddle be recused in the case. Bennett ruled that Riddle must be recused from the case because he would be a witness should an evidentiary hearing ever be ordered to determine if Simmons' sentence should be overturned or a new trial ordered.

Bennett ruled last month that 12th Judicial District Judge Kerry Spruill could have no further involvement in the case due to a previous professional relationship with potential witnesses in the case. Bonus said he was pleased with Bennett's ruling.

"Today was a good day," Bonus said. "Of course, it's a short victory. There is still an innocent man sitting in prison."

Riddle said he will be contacting the Attorney General's Office and will turn the entire case file over to the AG.

Bonus said he is looking forward to the Attorney General taking over the case "because we need some fresh eyes to look at this."

Hello family, friends and supporters.

I want to let each one of you, your family and friends know that I thank you all with each beat of my heart. We all know that every life matters, especially when one is innocent, and the judicial system is broken. It is so sad that an innocent person have to spend 43yrs, before, we receive justice and freedom. So please, your support, your donations and your prayers are the voices of justice for me.

Vincent Simmons.
