“In 1991, while hanging out on the Old Chain Of Rocks, Route 66 Bridge, with some people I had been partying with that night. I was a part of a crime that took place, where innocent people were raped, robbed, and murdered. I hate that I did not have the courage to stop the attack and I hate that I took part in one of the rapes.
I was convicted of two counts of First Degree Capital Murder and received two death sentences on April 9, 1993. I spent-the next twenty-three years trying to prove I did not kill anyone and arguing the reason I confessed was because of police brutality.
On May 18, 2009, I was read an execution warrant that scheduled my execution for the 12:00 am on 17th day of June 2009, by means of the lethal injection, through the use of the three drug cocktail protocol. I prayed to the most high for the strength to accept the will of God, no matter what God’s decision might be. On June 5, 2009, a bird came and sat with me e whole first part of the day. Unbeknownst to me, my mother and father were pleading for my life with the Attorney General Chris Koster. At 4:45 pm that afternoon, I received a stay of execution.
After 23 years of struggling and loving support, my capital murder case was vacated on November 23, 2015. Where the Supreme Court Of Missouri, found a Brady violation occurred, where prosecutors his evidence that proved I was beaten by police detectives. On the 17th day of December 2017, I plead guilty in exchange for five, 30 year life sentences, with the possibility of parole and eligibility for immediate release. Now I fight for redemption among these good and bad choices.”
