Protect Innocent Kansans from Lying Jailhouse Informants

Wrongfully convicted Kansans Floyd Bledsoe and Lamonte McIntyre are calling for Kansas to pass legislation to prevent wrongful convictions based on lies told by jailhouse witnesses.

Jailhouse witnesses are a leading cause of wrongful convictions because the expectation of receiving a favorable deal creates a strong motivation for them to give false testimony against defendants. In addition, the people victimized by the jailhouse witnesses’ crimes are denied justice when leniency is the reward for testimony.

Sign up to show your support for preventing wrongful convictions caused by unreliable jailhouse witnesses in Kansas. 

 

This campaign is in partnership with the Midwest Innocence Project and Americans for Prosperity Kansas
