The Exoneration of Ricky Jackson

Ricky Jackson was sent to prison and sentenced to death in 1975 for a crime he did not commit. The only witness connecting Ricky to the crime was a 12 year old boy. The Ohio Innocence Project recently learned that the 12 year old boy was pressured by the police to identify Ricky and his two co-defendants.  On Friday, the state will drop all charges after he served 39 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. 

After 39 years Ricky has nothing.  Your donations will be given directly to Ricky to help rebuild his life.
