We don’t believe Albert Wilson, an aspiring journalist and college student, is guilty of rape and the circumstances surrounding his conviction should frighten and concern all Kansans interested in justice.
 
Why?

There was no DNA evidence linking him to the crime.

The prosecutor, Douglas County Assistant District Attorney Amy McGowan, has a history of trial errors that have gotten her removed from some cases and reassigned to other duties.

Albert faced an all-white jury.

Any one of these issues should trouble us, but all three in one case? African American men hardly stand a chance in our horribly flawed criminal justice system, but Albert’s case is especially egregious.

Our unjust system is robbing Albert of his future with every passing moment. His wrongful conviction is just another example of the racial biases, blatant lies, and subtle racism devouring entire generations of African Americans and fueling mass incarceration.

His sentencing is scheduled for February 20, 2019and his family wants to immediately appeal his case, but the retention fees alone for appellate lawyers begin at about $15,000 to $20,000.

Please donate to #FreeAlbertWilson. No amount is too small.

We know Albert is not guilty.

But we’re all guilty if we stand by and allow this wicked system to destroy another innocent life.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

--Martin Luther King, Jr.
