Foundation claims it will assist falsely accused and convicted to obtain exonerating tests

Information provided by the Truth and Justice Foundation

Edited by Stormy Thoming-Gale, JD Staff

The Truth and Justice Foundation put out a press release that claims it will assist in obtaining forensic testing for innocent prisoners. Their mission statement says that the Truth and Justice Foundation qualifies defendants and inmates who claim innocence and initiates the forensic testing process. The Foundation focuses full attention and donated resources on liberating innocent prisoners and assisting the criminal justice systems to resolve the problem of wrongful convictions.

The Truth and Justice Foundation receives donations to provide critical services. The Foundation uses donations to unite pretrial defendants and convicted inmates who claim innocence, or both with reputable scientific laboratories that administer proven and reliable forensic tests. The forensic tests assist defendants and inmates to prove their innocence and to be liberated from prison.

The Foundation performs these services without regard to [one's] ability to pay.

The Truth and Justice Foundation arranges for the administration of the following types of forensic tests and the implementation of related services:

· DNA analyses (DNA genetic fingerprinting tests)
· Brain Fingerprinting tests
· Fingerprint tests
· Forensic chemistry techniques
· Forensic materials and biological samples analyses.

How it works:

Step 1: Donors contribute funds through eCharity.com to the Truth and Justice Foundation to cover costs of forensic testing services for indigent defendants and prison inmates who claim innocence.

Step 2: Pretrial defendants and post trial prison inmates or both who make extraordinary claims of innocence. Their claims of innocence are legitimized and become extraordinary claims because of the alleged occurrence of injustices that prevented them from obtaining competent justice, that is, attorney incompetence, illegal court biases and prejudices, witnesses who perjure themselves and are exposed, and other such causes.

Step 3: Members of the Press, friends and family members of the defendants and inmates, attorneys, and other observers of the alleged injustices, contact Truth and Justice Foundation to request forensic testing and related services. To qualify for such services, the defendant and inmate or both must be unable to pay (be indigent) for the services.

Step 4: Truth and Justice Foundation confirms indigence status and implements discussions with the prime supporters of the defendant or inmate to collect data on the following subjects:

· Establish the basic facts of the case and to learn the reasons surrounding the claims of innocence.

· Record contact information of the defendant, defendant's prime supporters, the people who have the most knowledge about the crime, law enforcement officers familiar with the case, the attorneys involved, witnesses, and others.

· Determine which type of forensic testing is required.

Step 5: Truth and Justice then contacts CELLMARK DIAGNOSTICS, INC. for DNA testing, Human Brain Research Laboratory, Inc. for Brain Fingerprinting testing and other laboratories (service providers) or both for other types of tests and analyses. CELLMARK DIAGNOSTICS, INC., as an approved service provider, requests and receives DNA samples from appropriate authorities and determines if DNA tests can be applied to the samples and, if so, implements the appropriate analyses of the samples. Analysis of a DNA sample has taken one or more months to complete in the past; however, improved processes have reduced time requirements substantially. Human Brain Research Laboratory, Inc., as an approved service provider, conducts an investigation of the case and develops and administers Brain Fingerprinting if appropriate. This process could include the following elements:

· Review of law enforcement documentation containing arrest information, court testimony, and other data.

· Conferences with law enforcement officers, attorneys, witnesses, and others familiar with the case.

· Visitations to the crime scene.

Following a thorough review of the case, Human Brain Research Laboratory, Inc. (HBRL), determines if information about the case exists that has not been divulged to the defendant or inmate. If such information exists, then HBRL develops a specific Brain Fingerprinting test consisting of several types of stimuli and administers the test to the defendant or inmate. The investigation and testing process requires from 15 to 30 hours of investigative and scientific processes.

Step 6: Service providers then provide the results of the tests to the appropriate law enforcement or criminal justice authorities. These groups along with the defendant and inmate attorneys determine if, how, and when the test results are to be presented at a Hearing (if a Hearing is granted). Service providers also resend a copy of the test results to Truth and Justice Foundation. In accordance with the agreement between Truth and Justice Foundation and the service provider, Truth and Justice Foundation compensates the service provider with funds that have been donated.

Note: Not all cases will require the exact steps described above.
