Hello, my name is Leroy Jones. I will be 45 years old on the 10th of August. I have been incarcerated since I was 30 for crimes I did not commit. I have proclaimed my innocence from day one. For years I reached out to celebrities, attorneys and different organizations with no success. Finally, in August 2020, the Rocky Mountain Innocence Center out of Utah decided to take my case. They came to Las Vegas to interview me on October 14, 2021. You can learn more about my case by reading the following: https://www.workers.org/2018/10/39574/
In October of 2022, I will be released. Even though I believe Rocky Mountain will eventually clear my name, until then, I still have family and my own life to support after the state of Nevada has taken everything from me. I want to lessen the burden of my already financially-challenged family and get back to the loving and supportive family man I was before all of this happened.
My goal is to support my family through the electrician trade. I am currently studying opportunities in HVAC and solar PV installation. Once released, I will begin my journey of getting my electrician license. This GoFundMe is to raise money for my educational expenses. I am truly thankful for any and every donation. I will pay it forward by advocating for those wrongfully convicted and prison reform. Even if you are not able to donate monetarily, I really appreciate you learning more about my case by visiting the following: https://www.workers.org/2018/10/39574/
