Tune in to the Injustice Anywhere Radio Program on Tuesday June 16 at 8 PM CDT, to listen to an in-depth analysis of the Jimmy Dennis case. Our scheduled guests are Tonya Sneed and Darren Motise.

Jimmy Dennis was convicted and sentenced to death in 1992 for the fatal shooting of 17-year-old high school student Chedell Ray Williams in North Philadelphia, in 1991.

The shooting took place at a bus stop over an apparent theft of a pair of earrings. Jimmy’s conviction was secured by questionable eyewitness testimony. Three eyewitnesses claiming to see Jimmy, described a perpetrator that was 5’10” or taller, weighing between 170 and 190 pounds. Jimmy is 5’4″ and weighed 130 pounds at the time of the murder.

There is no physical evidence linking Jimmy Dennis to the crime. Jimmy has steadfastly maintained his innocence, and he has supporters around the world fighting for his freedom.

A federal judge overturned Jimmy’s conviction in 2013. The 2013 ruling was overturned by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in February of this year. The February decision was then vacated in May, with a new hearing currently pending on the case.
