February 3 – February 7: Call to Demand Freedom for Clarence Moses-El, an innocent man
Monday, February 3 until Friday, February 7 we are asking people to make at least one call to demand that Clarence Moses-El be released from prison, where he is in the 27th year of a 48 sentence for a crime he did not commit. Your calls are important and will have an impact.
Add your voice to those urging release of Clarence Moses-El. Clarence Moses-El has been in prison for 27 years, convicted because of a dream and has always maintained his innocence. The Denver Police Department destroyed DNA evidence that would have exonerated him after Moses-El won a court order to have it tested. Recently, the person originally identified as having committed the crime confessed, writing a letter asking for Moses-El attorney to visit him, beginning the letter with, “I really don’t know what to say to you. But let’s start by bringing what was done in the dark into the light. I have a lot on my heart.”
It’s time for District Attorney Mitch Morrissey to do the right thing and set Clarence Moses-El free. From Feb. 3-7, Call District Attorney Mitch Morrissey – 720-913-9000 (9 a.m. – 5 p.m.).
