our recent cases
We're fighting to free innocent Texans
Right now we’re fighting in Bell County for the freedom of George Powell III. George was convicted of aggravated robbery in 2009 and sentenced to 28 years. George's innocence is anchored to two key facts. Witnesses said the robber was about 5 feet 7 inches tall. George is 6 feet 3 inches tall. New forensic video evidence confirms the robber was "short" and George clearly is not. Second, a jailhouse snitch lied about George being the robber in return for favorable treatment in his (the snitch) case. We now await the decision by the district court judge.
