FACTS Joins Terminally Ill Prisoner Patricia Wright’s Family in Asking for Her Immediate Release from Prison
WHEN: Wednesday, August 31st 11:00 am
WHERE: In front of Governor Brown’s downtown LA Office 300 So Spring St
WHO: Wright’s family, the FACTS community and all who can make it
WHY: Patricia Wright has terminal cancer and has been given 6 months to live. In 1998, Wright was convicted of killing her husband, a crime which was committed 17 years before. There was NO evidence to link her to the crime and absolutely NO motive which had any merit. The esteemed Innocence Project has taken her case.
The family has been fighting for her freedom since her conviction, but now their fight takes on renewed vigor. They want Patricia to be allowed to come home to spend her last days with her family. The Governor has been asked to grant her clemency, and though he is sympathetic, he insists that his hands are tied because Wright has three felonies on her record. Those three felonies consist of a murder she did not commit and the “theft” of two .99 cent toys taken by her 7 year old son in June 1989. The family has been informed by the Senate Public Safety Committee that according to California penal codes 4851& 4852, the Governor has power to grant pardon & clemency without going through the parole board or the Supreme Court. According to Families to Amend California’s Three Strikes -FACTS and all in support of Patricia, he has not only the right, but a moral imperative to release Patricia immediately. Family requested a meeting with Governor’s office on Aug 26th
