Citizens Demand Freedom for Jailed Man

The Justice for Terrell Campaign rallied outside the City-County Building today to demand freedom for Terrell Johnson.

Johnson was convicted in the 1994 shooting death of Verna Robinson. He has served 15 years in prison.

Johnson’s wife, Saundra Cole, says the lawyer for the first trial was inept and failed to call several witnesses to the stand or cross-examine the prosecution’s key witness. She says this led to his conviction.

Cole says with two new witnesses who can refute the testimony that convicted Johnson, he can likely be exonerated on his August 2nd retrial.
