Help Protect Innocent Oklahomans from Unreliable Jailhouse Informants
Help Prevent Wrongful Convictions in Oklahoma
Ronald Williamson was sentenced to death and Dennis Fritz was sentenced to life in prison for a crime they did not commit. Both were convicted of the 1988 murder of Debra Sue Carter in Ada, Oklahoma, based on the testimony of jailhouse informants. The jailhouse informants received leniency on their sentences after claiming to hear both men confess to the crime.
Years after they were convicted, DNA testing on the crime scene evidence revealed that neither man was the actual murderer. The DNA matched to a man named Glenn Gore, who had gone on to commit other violent crimes against women. Evidence of their innocence also revealed that both jailhouse informants had lied.
Sign up to help pass a law in Oklahoma to help protect innocent people like Ronald Williamson and Dennis Fritz from being wrongfully convicted based on unreliable jailhouse informants.
