The Lubbock DA, LPD, DEA, LSO and the Task Force in 1988 framed me and falsely arrested me 3 times, destroyed my family and business and tried to hold me on a one million dollar bond. I have suffered much as Mr. Cole and there has been no effort on their part to correct the wrong done to me. They only covered it up and destroyed the records I need to prove their criminality. The District Attorneys office refuses to return to me the property that they stole, including the evidence that I had in my possession that would prove that they made a practice of persecuting the innocent; in fact Matt Powell has done nothing to clear my name or help me in any way. Lubbock, fire your District Attorney! THAT OFFICE TRIED TO DO TO ME WHAT THEY DID TO MR. COLE.
Like the Rolling Stones "I Can’t Get No Satisfaction".
AUSTIN – A district judge Friday declared the record of a man wrongfully convicted in Lubbock more than 20 years ago clean and cleared, delivering legal salve to a family long-tormented by their eldest son’s sentence and later death in prison.
But questions remained just hours after the ruling on how the order marking the state’s first posthumous exoneration could stand.
