Pete Coones is Free!

On Friday, November 6th, Pete Coones was freed from prison after serving more than 12 years for a murder he did not commit. Prosecutorial misconduct, inadequate investigation, and a jailhouse snitch contributed to Pete's wrongful conviction. 

After spending some time in Kansas City with his children and grandchildren, Pete will move to Alabama with his wife of 42 years. We have started this fundraiser to raise money that will help Pete get through a difficult reintegration process. 

Our goal is to raise $5,000 for Pete's return to society. This money will help with clothing, housing, transportation, accessories, medical care, and a comfortable start back into a world much different from when he was wrongfully convicted. No amount of money can fix the wrong done to Pete and his family. However, getting a good start back to life and easing his financial burden can make a huge impact.

Your generous donation(s) will help Pete emerge from his nightmare, and back into his role as a father, grandfather, and husband.
