"Texas Death Row Inmate going Home"
By the time this article is read by the subscribers of the C.F.T.J., another Texas death row inmate will have been freed, on an unanimous vote of 9 – 0 by the full Court.
Damon J. Richardson who has spent 14 years on Texas death row had his case overturned and the High Court of Texas vacated his death sentence. Slowly the wheels of justice have moved for my friend and now he will soon feel the wind on his face.
Damon is my best friend and the first person I allowed to get close to me on the row and I’m truly happy that my friend is free from the clutches of the executioner.
His freedom came at extreme costs, which were almost at $ 200 thousand dollars. By law he can be paid up to $ 250 thousand dollars for his wrongful imprisonment. If he had not been able to pay these high lawyer fees, he wouldn’t be going home. Justice in Texas comes at a very high price. Life is priceless and what ever is needed must be gotten somehow someway.
Hello Mr. Farley?? I am replying back to your blog you wrote, I am glad to see that you have responded to my BLOG. I will make sure I give him your name....THANKS AND MUCH LUV BACK 2 YOU!!!!!!! Damon ... more
