John Richards - Tech Entrepreneur, Freelance Author, Civil Rights Activist and Fierce Advocate for the Wrongly Convicted Posts

What’s up for my next project?

I’m going to continue to fight against wrongful convictions and for the #wrongfullyconvicted.

Because of the Scott Davis case, I’ve seen how ineffective the groups in particularly Georgia are. @GaInnocence doesn’t seem to care at all about or simply doesn’t have the motivated resources to fight police or prosecutorial misconduct. I ask how can there be ZERO EFFORTS to hold the disgraced former GBI firearm examiner Bernadette Davy accountable for faking what is probably HUNDREDS of evidence tests?

The Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers @gacdl is equally culpable for ineffective advocacy. You wouldn’t see this in California.

So my efforts are going to try and band together some of the many disparate innocence advocacy groups so we can be more effective. Thoughts?

Book Published Today

Well today the book was finally published. Thanks to Dennis Ross for How to Convict an Innocent Man. I will also be posting numerous pictures, and news articles about the book.

The media and PR efforts will be somewhat complicated. However because of the unique way the book was written and published, I look forward to seeing the results. I hope you enjoy the book and I look to all my blog readers and fans to give me comments and if you want to get involved in helping Scott Davis in fighting his wrongful conviction, please contact me or his attorney Paul Kish in Atlanta.

New book background

Here is a draft of what we have been working on.

Award winning journalist

Here is a news story about the case in the book.

I saw this case originally on 48 Hours Mystery and was enthralled. Scott Davis was one of the people who ran for California Governor against Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2003.


My impression was and is that he is innocent. Why run for Governor if you murdered someone? You don’t at least if your smart and by all accounts Scott is very intelligent.

So, I researched this with some help.
