Liberty & Justice for All???
"The Constitutions of the United States and Georgia claim to guarantee equal justice and fairness and that any person accused of a crime for which he or she faces the loss of liberty be represented by a lawyer. ...But in Georgia, people accused of crimes are not always provided lawyers. And some who are provided lawyers do not see them until it is too late for the lawyer to be of any genuine assistance. And too often the lawyers provided do not have the time, skills and resources to provide meaningful representation." - Excerpt From: "If you cannot afford a lawyer...": A report on Georgia's failed indigent defense system by the Southern Center for Human Rights (SCHR) Jan 2003
Mike with his daughter Avalon in 1997
In 1998, Mike Holloway was convicted of armed robbery in Augusta, Georgia and received a life sentence without parole.
- He was not identified by witnesses!
- No weapon was recovered!
- His court appointed lawyer spent less than 30 minutes with him before his trial!
- Numerous other defects of evidence & due process are cited in the Habeas Brief.
A writ of Habeas Corpus has been filed with the Georgia Supreme Court documenting the extremely poor legal representation that this man received and he is seeking a new trial.
If you have the legal skills, the investigative skills, or the financial means to help Mike get a fair day in court,
please contact him via this advocate. - Thank you.
Arrogant Judges, Prosecutors & Public Defenders...
... LOVE Ignorant & Apathetic Citizens!
Consider this: Under the US criminal code, prosecuting someone thru the justice system without due process is a criminal offense in itself. That's right. In addition to squandering tax dollars on an abomination of justice, -those responsible for playing "court" - (when everyone from the prosecutor to the defense -including the judge- knows it's a scam against the citizenry) - are committing FELONIES in doing so. And because these actors are in collusion with each other in order to keep their paychecks flowing (at the expense of actual justice) - they become FELONS again -via their unspoken (but obvious) conspiracy/s! Do you think I'm being melodramatic?
Read the following criminal statute and being contemplative of what happens to a person prosecuted criminally without due process and wrongly incarcerated ; - Judge for yourself:
"Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death." -18USC242
