My name is Tommy. I am currently serving a life sentence for second degree murder and am seeking assistance with post-conviction relief.
My case parallels others such as Breonna Taylor in Kentucky and Alteria Woods in Florida where law enforcement conduct and deviation from policy have led to someone’s death. The difference in my case is that it was one of their own who suffered the fatal consequence. I was scared, alone and hiding in fear of my life when police entered the home unannounced to apprehend me. I did not pursue or attack anyone. I acted in self-defense under circumstances that would cause any reasonable person to become emotionally disturbed.
The prosecution overcharged and advanced this case solely because the victim was a police officer but the evidence presented did not meet the standard for murder. There were also several issues that eroded my constitutional right to a fair trial, which are currently being reviewed for appeal, such as the court denying the defense motion for a change of venue due to the considerable media coverage as well as not removing openly biased jurors. In addition, the consecutive sentence imposed was harsh, retaliatory and beyond the norm.
My story is not uncommon. More and more we are seeing citizen and police interactions that lead to wrongful arrests, death and overzealous prosecution. I would like to shed light on my case and countless others that have been the subject of an arrest gone wrong. Creating a movement to help change policies and procedures is also a goal of mine. Please reach out to me if you are interested in justice reform and would like to support me in my efforts for post-conviction relief and other changes within the system.
