By US~Observer Client
The US~Observer is the only known newspaper in the United States with the sole purpose of helping prevent and overturn wrongful convictions. The US~Observer has helped prevent or overturn thousands of wrongful criminal charges, which can be seen on their website, or by searching for, “usobserver vindicated stories.” Not being an attorney driven entity has caused prospective clients some confusion about the US~Observer. After all, the criminal justice system most often requires the use of an attorney. People have been led to believe that when they are in trouble, they must rush to an attorney. What if that was not the only option for someone who is innocent? Simply put, it is not the only option. So, why a newspaper to help the innocent? The real question should be: if you are innocent, why not the US~Observer?
Rather than have the US~Observer explain how they can help you, perhaps you should heed the words of their past clients – people who are currently enjoying freedom.
“Your investigative reporting exposed the government’s lies before trial. The jury unanimously acquitted me. Thank you. Your services should be used by anyone who is innocent!”
–Kevin O. – Assault, Acquitted
“If it wasn’t for the US~Observer being involved and promoting the truth in my case I very well could have died in jail. I almost certainly would have never seen any amount of freedom. And without doubt, the prosecutors would have never, in a million years, stopped their unjust prosecution of me. Few will ever know the time spent on this epic war for righteousness, truth and justice.”
–James F. – 1st Degree Murder, Dismissed with Prejudice
New Groups Emerge to Help the Innocent
The United States has recently seen a well needed influx of advocates for the innocent, and justifiably so. We (United States) incarcerate more men and women, per capita, than any other developed nation. And those who have been wrongfully charged or convicted know all too well – there is a dire need for advocates.
American media personality, Kim Kardashian, is just one well-known celebrity helping victims of wrongful conviction. NBC’s Kristen Dahlgren reported, “Kim Kardashian West has been instrumental in freeing 17 prisoners from life sentences in the past three months. The reality star, who is studying to become a lawyer, has backed individual cases in her push for prison reform.”
Several groups on Facebook and other social media also advocate for the innocent, one being Court Victims United.
The Innocence Project (IP) is one of the most well-known advocates for the innocent. A team of attorney’s, IP focuses mostly on DNA evidence, helping exonerate people who have already been convicted. IP also uses other professionals to help exonerate their clients.
Everyone Who is Innocent Should Contact the US~Observer
Unlike many groups, the US~Observer has NO waiting list. They are easy to reach, too! Also, the US~Observer helps prevent wrongful convictions, which many groups do not. Jeffrey Deskovic, an exonerated man who is now a defense attorney commented on my husband’s false murder case the US~Observer won for him. Deskovic said the, “…rarest of rarest occurrences took place: media (US~Observer) PREVENTED a wrongful conviction, not helped correct one…”
If you are innocent, and are facing false criminal charges, or have already been convicted, you should contact the US~Observer. There are many ways they can help; ways that only having an attorney cannot. They also help those facing unjust civil actions.
