Innocence Network Accepting Award Nominations


The Innocence Network will give two new annual awards for the first time next year, and the group is accepting nominations now.

One prize – the Champion of Justice Award – will go to a public servant who has gone above and beyond to free the innocent and/or reform the criminal justice system to prevent wrongful convictions. The other award- the Journalism Award – will honor investigative reporting that has brought the issues around wrongful conviction to life.

Nominations are due January 8 and the awards will be announced at the Innocence Network annual conference April 16-18 in Atlanta.

Happy holidays,
I’m a paralegal looking for Advice in filling a “notice to remove” from state court on a personal case involving my home. can you help? It’s been ruled on by the court of special appeals but they don’t believe in protecting a persons constitutional right to a hearing. Do you think the federal court will honor it? My name is Wayne Sikes and my phone number is 301-933-1065. I was once a liaison for NCFM (because of numerous false arrest and the state of Marylands protective order racket)and am currently looking for work in the paralegal field and your office. I’ve never been found guilty of anything except trying to be a father to my daughter. Apparently that is enough for the courts to extort from a father all he has worked his life to create.
Mr. Sikes
