The Committee to Free Jamie Snow is hosting their third annual Postcards in the Park event this weekend in Bloomington, Illinois. 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. Jamie’s supporters are now looking to attract national attention. This year’s postcards will be sent to Erin Moriarty of 48 Hours, asking her to visit FreeJamieSnow.com and review the case for consideration of a 48 Hours investigative report.
The committee is asking supporters to gather at Miller Park in Bloomington, Illinois 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.
If you cannot attend the event, you can still participate by sending postcards to:
ATTN: Erin Moriarty
524 West 57th St.
New York, NY 10019
Erin recently saw the event being promoted on Twitter and tweeted back “Send them!” inspiring Jamie’s supporters to ramp up their efforts. I look forward to attending this wonderful event for Jamie Snow and encourage everyone reading here to participate. Wrongful convictions are a worldwide epidemic. We must do more to prevent the unjust imprisonment of innocent people. If we work together we can all make a difference.
