Daniel Larsen is innocent: he knows it, the three witnesses who testified at his post-conviction hearing helped prove it, and a judge exonerated him and said he should be released. But even though Daniel was declared innocent two years ago, he’s still in prison– all because the California Attorney General says he did not present his evidence of innocence quickly enough.
Daniel’s fiance Christina has been waiting for him to come home so they can finally start their life together.
Christina is going to deliver her petition to California‘s Deputy Attorney General on Monday, and wants to be able to hand over as many signatures as possible. Click here to sign Christina’s petition.
Daniel was convicted because his original defense attorney didn’t call anyone to the stand to defend him. He was charged with possession of a concealed weapon, and even though there were plenty of witnesses who could back Daniel up, including a former Chief of Police, none of them were called. And because Daniel had other strikes on his record, the judge gave him a sentence of 28-years-to-life.
After being incarcerated for more than ten years, The Innocence Project heard Daniel’s story. They asked the court to hear his case, and with witnesses there this time, the judge found Daniel innocent.
Christina and Daniel got engaged shortly after Daniel was exonerated, and Christina visits Daniel every Sunday. She says that her visits with Daniel are the highlight of her week.
Christina sees no reason why the Attorney General would keep an innocent man in prison because of a paperwork technicality. Click here to sign Christina’s petition and ask the California Attorney General to release Daniel Larsen.
