Temujin Kensu -35 yrs wrongfully convicted

Hi, My name is Paula and I am fundraising for my fiancé, Temujin Kensu, who was wrongfully convicted of the murder of Scott Macklem in 1986. Temujin has served 35 years for this crime that was physically impossible for him to commit. I say that because of the abundance of evidence of his innocence. You may say there has to be evidence of his guilt if he was convicted, but the absolute truth is that there is NONE. Most people find it incredible and unbelievable that 12 jurors can find somebody guilty of a crime who is really innocent, but it happens more than you realize. Evidence did not convict Temujin; misconduct and corruption did. In fact, a very courageous judge ruled in 2010 that Temujin should be released or given a new trial because she agreed there was egregious misconduct by the prosecutor and attorney in his case, but unfortunately that ruling was later overturned due to a timing technicality! Her name was Denise Paige Hood and you can find the link to the Habeas ruling below. Imagine, being told over a decade ago that you didn't deserve to be in prison, yet you remain because of a very broken "justice" system that refuses to let you go!

Temujin's case is now before the Michigan Attorney General's Conviction Integrity Unit, which we have faith will release him very soon. Because he will meet the criteria, he will be eligible for the wrongful conviction compensation, but that could take up to a year for him to see (if not longer). This fundraiser will help him to start enjoying life now. Temujin had everything in his life stolen from him throughout the years starting from his very corrupt trial attorney who was found to be abusing drugs DURING his trial and he was later disbarred from practicing law, also Temujin had many belongings stole from him by the Michigan Department of Corrections due to their varying policies at different facilities over the decades. Temujin wants to come home and enjoy life starting with some travelling to visit friends and family members as well as quiet reflection time and purchasing some fun "toys" such as a motor home or snowmobiles.

I'll close with these links where you can learn more about this incredible story, his complete and absolute innocence, as well as hear from Temujin in his own words how this wrongful conviction has impacted his life:
