    Mr Scheck,
    I can appreciate your sponsorship to alleviate those wrongfully convicted.
    Even by false confessions but
    Why are is the criteria set so high and unfair for equal access and protections to those that has a legitimate
    Open case and released..
    That you can help ..
    Does the suffering have to be of such high degree to care?
    And or help?
    There’s more than just DNA that
    Can clear an innocent person..
    What about the DNA structures of misconduct that is holding the case together.

    Mr. Sheck,
    I am the publisher of the newspaper in Elgin, Texas. I sat through the Rodney Reed appeal. I am stunned by the verdict. I’m inviting your opinion, on our editorial page and think it would be a welcomed rejoinder to the decision.
    Your thoughts matter.
    If you could share them, I’d appreciate it.
    Sincerely,
    Kevin Wright
    Publisher
