Free Tom and Molly Martens Now

Update posted by Mona Earnest On Mar 15, 2021

The wheels of our American justice system may be slow but they are certainly not broken. On Friday, March 12, 2021 the NC Supreme Court affirmed the appellate court decision to overturn the conviction against Tom and Molly. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the justices who saw this conviction for the travesty of justice that it was and made this ruling to right the wrong that occurred on August 9th, 2017. We are also grateful for the ever vigilant attorneys who argued on behalf of Tom and Molly and who never waivered in their steadfast faith in our American justice system. Unfortunately, the financial burden continues for the Marten's family as there will soon be preparations made for a new trial. We humbly seek and thank you for your continued support.

Please see the attached link for details on the most recent ruling.

Quote from the NC Appellate Court ruling - Feb 4th

"The tragic and unusual circumstances of this case are a humble reminder of the importance of the jury’s vital role in our delicate system of justice. Due to the compounding evidentiary and instructional errors that occurred both before and throughout the three-week trial in this matter, Defendants were prevented from presenting a meaningful defense, or from receiving the full benefit of their claims of self-defense and defense of a family member. As a result, the jury was denied critical evidence and rendered incapable of performing its constitutional function. Defendants are therefore entitled to a new trial'

I have attached the entire NC Appellate Court Opinion below:

Courageous behavior or character, valor, nerve, daring, fearlessness, heroism, backbone, showing up, saying "no" when you know you need to so that you can "yes" to the right things, it's having the courage to stay the course and do the right thing even when it feels like you're swimming upstream, it's being the dad - no matter the cost.

Thanks again to all of our generous backers - please continue to share this funding campaign across the nation.

Connor Martens recently posted this to FB and it is without question a MUST READ for every US Citizen:

This picture was taken a month before the trial at a wedding I took Molly Martens Corbett to in Charleston. As you can imagine it was difficult to escape the anxiety of 12 strangers determining your life, but we never could have imagined what has happened.


With all of that said, this post isn't about the conditions of the North Carolina Correctional Facility. It isn't just about domestic abuse. It isn't about the ineptitude of a rural county investigation or the prosecution preventing evidence from being presented. It isn't even about whether they're guilty or innocent. At this point, it is about every American and their right to a fair trial.

1) the basic premise of serving on a jury is to NOT construct your own theory

2) The judge's instructions specifically say they could not consider Molly to be the "aggressor." Another juror has declared Molly to be manipulative and bi polar. She did not testify nor did any witness testify to her character in any way. Again, it does not take a legal mind to understand this is unlawful.

Lastly, another juror on 20/20 made the statement the defense failed to prove them innocent. Every hour of the near 4 week trial, the jury was reminded that it is the state's burden to prove the defendants guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The defense has NO burden meaning they do not have to prove anything. Did you know in the state of North Carolina juries are not sequestered even for a murder case?


This isn't just about my family.

Today we took our campaign to the streets of Washington DC to spread the word about how Tom saved his daughter's life and how the State of NC convicted them both for 2nd degree murder. Our fellow Americans were outraged.

Thank you again for your continued support. Please keep sharing www.gogetfunding.com/right-the-wrong-help-molly-tom

Tom and Molly's attorney's filed a motion today for appropriate relief in Davidson Superior Court. They allege that the jurors engaged in misconduct, which they say requires that the verdict be set aside. I have attached the Winston-Salem Journal link for everyone. Thanks again for your continued support.

Best of luck to you both. I have a daughter who was similarly abused by a now former spouse.

This is a very worthy cause. Unfortunately, former FBI Agents are attractive targets for prosecution and I believe that is one important reason Tom and Mollie were prosecuted under circumstances where authorities would have normally never even filed charges. They deserve our support.
