Neal for New Life
Organized by: brandon robbins
Neal Hampton Robbins was wrongfully convicted for a crime that never happened. Neal's girlfriend baby died in her sleep in may 1998. A medical examiner ruled it a homicide without having any information surrounding her death. A prosicuter and a ME worked together to convict even know there were others who saw the baby alive hours after Neal had left the home where the baby died. Neal was first granted a new trial after serving 10 years of his life sentance due to the ME changing her autopsy report. With a new law "junk science" and After 18 years in prison he was released 8/18/2016. He was given a pair of white boxers and a tshirt, not one dollar or a bus ticket. All his family has passed except his brother who was 700 miles away. The State of Texas dropped all charges due to no other evidence to retry and to make it impossible to receive payment for all his years spent behind bars wrongfully convicted. Because of junk science and the controversy of the Harris County medical examiners office and thier ME who has ruined other innocent lives by favoring the prosicuters, Neal Hampton Robbins desirves a normal life but needs help!
Recently, “60 Minutes” on CBS broadcast a revealing segment about men and women who have been wrongfully convicted of serious crimes and sent to death row or to maximum-security prisons. Thanks to the hard work of individuals and organizations such as The Innocence Project, some of the wrongfully convicted after years and even decades of being imprisoned have been freed and exonerated. New exculpatory evidence had proved the convicted people were never guilty of the crimes for which they were sentenced. The damage done to these innocent people and their loved ones is incalculable.
Thirty states in our country have statutes requiring compensation for the wrongfully convicted. Texas and other states are not paying in some cases by dropping charges and not giving the wrongfully convicted thier day in court to get the not guilty verdict they desperately desirve!
