A retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel is calling for clemency on behalf of a 53-year old African American who has served 18 years in prison for killing a drug dealer. Says John Malley:
I have studied this case for 10 years, interviewed witnesses, studied the jury trial and have concluded this man is innocent. The jury case was questionable. The public defender begged Ronnie Anderson to plead guilty and he would be out of prison in 15 years.
Malley says he would provide the prisoner with a job if he is released. See story here.
