Drug Conspiracy

Bruce Harrison, prisoner of the drug war
I'm 46 years old and if my appeal brings no relief, I'll probably spend the rest of my life incarcerated. Like so many others, I'm a first time offender. Unlike many others, my convictions stem from determined government henchmen.

After years of investigation and attempts in state court, they were unable to secure a conviction. Their persistence eventually paid off by entrapping me and my co-defendants. I became a duped puppet doing the marionette mamba to the strings pulled by manipulative government agents.

They successfully employed tactics which were so appalling, 8 of the 12 jurors protested their own verdicts! A few even stated they would have exercised a jury pardon, if they had known of it's existence. Unfortunately, the courts are no longer required to include that option in their jury instructions.

So, here I sit; almost 2,000 miles away from all my family, friends, and other loved ones. And if you think you're safe inside your walls, you might want to think again. In this war even the innocent are not immune.
