I was arrested for a murder I did not do.
I sat for a year, then came two.
Finally my trial, such as it was.
Innocent doesn't matter, It never does.
Twelve jurors listened, but did not here.
They looked at some pictures, and cried a few tears.
The Judge said death ! And put me on the row.
Now I sit here , with no place to go.
The days are long, the nights are too.
I day dream a lot, cause there's nothing to do.
Is this the way my life will end ?
Strapped in "The Chair", for another's sin.
Does anyone care this is "Wrong" ?
Can anyone see I don't belong ?
Maybe this is how it was meant to be.
At least two know the truth, The lord and me.

I was wrongfully convicted of murder.
The victim was a friend I had known for seventeen years. My conviction
was based on less than overwhelming circumstantial evidence. My case
has been appealed to the Florida Supreme Court. I am awaiting their
decision now. I was arrested Jan 17, 1996. It took two years
to get to trial. I have been on death row since June 3, 1998.
Because my case is presently in the Flrida Supreme Court on appeal, I can
not discuss the facts of the case. Soon as a decision is made I will
make available what facts I can to the webpage. Thank
