The Committee to Free Jamie Snow is hosting their fourth annual Postcards in the Park in Bloomington, Illinois, on August 3, 2014. The annual event is designed to bring more attention to the wrongful conviction of Jamie Snow.
Jamie Snow was wrongfully convicted in 2001 for the 1991 murder of William Little, a gas station attendant in Bloomington, Illinois. Jamie is currently serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole in Stateville prison in Joliet, Illinois.
Jamie Snow has proclaimed his innocence from day one. In the years following his conviction, new information has come to light clearly showing that police misconduct and bad lawyering sent the wrong man to prison for William Little’s murder. Jamie Snow is innocent.
The Committee to Free Jamie Snow has worked diligently to keep the spotlight on Jamie’s case. The postcard event has successfully drawn the attention of the local media each year. Last year Jamie’s supporters set out to gain national attention, reaching out to Erin Moriarty from CBS 48 Hours, and this year they will continue their mission with postcards being sent to Keith Morrison of Dateline NBC, asking him to visit FreeJamieSnow.com and review the case for consideration of a Dateline NBC investigative report.
The committee is asking supporters to gather at Miller Park in Bloomington, Illinois, on August 3rd from 11:00am – 2:00pm to show their support for Jamie’s innocence. All supplies needed to send the postcards will be provided and the group will also release a balloon for each year Jamie has been wrongfully convicted.
Wrongful Conviction News will post another reminder shortly before the event, but we know that people have busy lives, so start planning your weekend in Bloomington now. Jamie Snow needs your support!
