Darrell's Poetry

In 2005, our friend and at that time director of the German Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, Initiative gegen die Todesstrafe, Britta Slopianka, asked me whether we of PHADP would like to be represented at an anti-death penalty event, along with other anti-death penalty organizations, her group was organizing. The event was to take place in a cathedral in Hamburg. Britta suggested that along with other Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty material we could perhaps also record Darrell reading some of his poetry.

Darrell's Innocence

In the spring of 2009 I received a call from Jillian Somers, then a law student in her final semester, asking whether I would be willing to talk about Darrell's case. I asked Jillian how she had found us and she told me that she come to us through Darrell's poetry. He would have liked that and so we not only spoke at length but I made his legal records available to Jillian. We thank her!

Final paper for a forensic law class by Jillian Somers at Hastings School of Law, CA which reaches the conclusion that Alabama likely executed an innocent man.

Darrell's Statement

Statement of Facts:

After 20+ years on death row and acceptance of guilt, I came to question my participation in the crime of which I was convicted and for which I received the death penalty. My family, friends and acquaintances had never believed it, as I had no prior criminal record or reputation for violence.
