The Exoneration of Ricky Jackson
After 39 years Ricky has nothing. Your donations will be given directly to Ricky to help rebuild his life.
To find out more visit the sites below:
Brandon Brown is a current fellow with the Ohio Innocence Project and law student at the University of Cincinnati.
This fund is administered by the Ohio Innocence Project. Again all money will be going directly to Ricky Jackson.
Also, anyone who wishes to also donate to Wiley, Ricky's co-defendant who was also released Friday, may do so at gofundme.com/wiley.
Again thank you some much for the support!
This is absolutely wonderful for this man. I would like people to visit my campaign for Exoneration of Robert Nelson. He spent 29 years in prison for rapes he did not commit. He was released 18 months ago and has not received anything from anyone. He does have an $11 an hour job but still living in his sister's basement. I am his friend and it is very hard to watch the struggle these men go through after society and the judicial system turned their backs on them. They didn't ask for their lives to be taken away. Rob only wants his own home and a normal life. Please take time to read his story too. Thank you. And may God continue to bless you Ricky Jackson and Project Innocence.
Anyone that can help us or know anyone who can please add months or leave me a comment on my gofundme account
Ricky is so deserving of every penny, but we need to support his friend and codependent Wiley too - only $14,535 has been raised for him!
Sending you my love Ricky! May God bless you! You are an inspiration to so many other innocent people imprisoned in our "justice" system.
Congrats Ricky Jackson and to God well done God is God all by himself!!!!!:)
So happy to hear the good new for Ricky Jackson. Like him, my brother is an innocent man who is facing life in prison for a crime he didn't commit. He has Asperger's Syndrome (high functioning Autusm) and was blamed because he's the easy one to target. We are desperately trying to raise the needed funds for his legal defense so that he's properly represented the first time around in his upcoming trial and WON'T be convicted of something he didn't do in the first place. Please help if you can by donating or sharing the link: www.youcaring.com/JusticeforJustin2015. Thank you!
Why didn't the 12 year old boy come forward when he reached maturity? Much of the blame falls on him! How sad, no amount of money can make up for a lost lifetime.
Hello congrats to ricky ! :-) Now can someone plz help me I have an fund raiser for youngsters of all ranges and MuSic art fashion art and dace plz go to my fund raiser page and donate to help build an artist center for troubled and unfortunate teen girls and boys wit all praises to God and his loving caring grace!

Ricky Jason are you part of the innocent project? I enjoy reading your messages! Ricky Jackson your looking young and handsome, strong and capable. I believe the sky is the limit! I want to follow you I want to see you succeed in life. (Better get social media friendly)I hope with the grace of god Ricky you are given back things denied. That you seek gainful employment, love, strong faith, loyal friends. It hurts to think of the trials you may face. I pray you find strength and something tells me you will find happiness.
So the city is like OOPS, sorry about that guy!! THEY SHOULD PAY HIM FOR ALL OF THE YEARS OF POTENTIAL INCOME HE MISSED BY BEING WRONGLY ACCUSED. I think this is a very nice and generous thing that people are doing by donating money so he can rebuild his life, but let's say who is really obligated to help him with money to rebuild, really folks !!
Good luck to you!
God bless the people who worked for Ricky's freedom! My prayers will be with him! What an amazing man to go to study law after being robbed of a good chunk of his life. He will surely get a good amount of money from the state but that can take a long time to come to fruition. In the mean time he will have to survive with almost nothing to work with. Bless everyone who helps him. As a society we have wronged this man. The least we can do is show him love and support now after the living hell he was put through for 39 years.
Lick my balls!
I think that money should be pay by the city. Not by donations . I hope he sue.
What a job the innocence project does for those that are innocent! I feel for those that don't ever get the chance Ricky & Wiley got. OHIO OWES THESE MEN BIG TIME!!! I feel bad for the 12 year old boy as well. Good Luck Guys and GOD BLESS YOU & good luck with all your future endeavors.
I agree with Tanya. He should sue. The cities "oh gee, sorry, we had the wrong guy" in my opinion isn't good enough.
This is a joke. No, not the exoneration. Well deserved. The joke is he has to get money from donations and less than a thousand dollars a year. Here's my take on it: the city/county/state should all be pulling out 20-30 thousand per year of incarceration, including preliminaries including pretrial.
I share the same sentiment as Ron i think he should be filing a wrongful conviction suit against the city for 39 years normally this is SOP for someone whose life was taken from them 39 years my goodness. I hope he will file.
Doesnt a typical wrongful conviction generate approximately 1 million per year served in civil suits
