Wrongfully Convicted.  Wrongfully Incarcerated.

Kris Helton has the privilege of meeting with Tony Dungy, Michael Vick, Dan Patrick, and Peter King!

Posted by on May 27, 2014 at 2:30 PM

When Abe Brown Ministries visited Avon Park Correctional Institution, Kris Helton had the honor of meeting Tony Dungy, Michael Vick, Dan Patrick, and Peter King. After Kris explained his plight, Coach Dungy said, “I’ve heard about wrongful convictions like yours.” Vick quickly added, “A lot of guy say they’re innocent, but you sound like the real deal.” Patrick advised, “If you’re really innocent, you’ve go to keep on fighting because somebody, somewhere will listen, although it may take awhile.” “Yeah,” added King, “somebody’s going to do something for you someday, I’m sure of it.” To see photographs of the visit, please check out our photo gallery!

The more people who know about this, the better exposure you will get and hopefully on Dateline or 48 Hours! Good going on this meeting!!

Too bad Kris was not able to walk out of there with Tony Dungy, Michael Vick, Dan Patrick, and Peter King. Free Kris Helton!!!

We should recruit these guys for some rallies! I doubt they will ever come on board for a boycott of Key West and the Florida Keys, but who knows?

There is no way these guys will support a boycott. However, I am sure we can persuade them to attend a rally or two. Our story social media presence are quite compelling!

Susan is right. Coach Dungy, Dan Patrick, and Peter King are way too classy for a boycott . . . and dog lovers may go ahead and visit Key West and the Florida Keys just to rub it in Michael Vick?s face that they don?t support anything he supports. I think we should just stick to recruiting these guys (including Vick) for a rally or two. No big commitments!

If we add Tony Dungy, Michael Vick, Dan Patrick, and Peter King to the other celebrities behind ?Free the West Memphis Three,? we will be cooking with gas!

We still don't have those people. We are working on it, though . . .

Kris says that he will agree to be interviewed by traditional media sources like 48 Hours, Dateline, 60 Minutes, and so forth, but only if it is part of a larger story about how so many individuals, like him, can remain incarcerated for their lives -- or be executed -- for crimes they did not commit just because their federal habeas petitions were not timely filed. He thinks the Obama administration and Attorney General Eric Holder will support an easing of the 1-year limitation period for federal prisoners to file their motions to vacate.

Cool photos of the visit!

Yeah, the photos are cool. It is nice to see people like this reading out to inmates, including Kris. We will see if others, like Johnny Depp, want to step out of the shadows and help Kris in a more public kind of way. He did so with the West Memphis Three.

We are working on more celebrity support for our efforts to free Kris for a crime he did not commit. Johnny Depp is one of the many people we are recruiting.

But we will not need these people if someone does the right thing by causing Kris to be released.

Do you need help with recruiting other celebrities? My sister is an agent in Los Angeles. She works with some pretty famous people. I am sure she may be able to help.
8:01 PM on June 11, 2014 
Yes, we can always use some more help with recruiting celebrities! Other supporters have already been using Facebook to reach out to a number of personalities. It certainly helps that Kris was able to meet a lot of famous people while living and working in Key West, including Jimmy Buffet, Mel Fisher, Don Johnson, Melanie Griffith, Kurt Russell, Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson, Timothy Dalton, Kelly McGillis, Bernie Little, Auggie Busch, and Al Copeland. And in addition to meeting with Tony Dungy, Michael Vick, Dan Patrick, and Peter King while incarcerated, Kris has been able to meet Tommy Frasier, Javon Kearse, Vernon Carey, and Billy Lane.

Today we are announcing the start of our boycott of the Florida Keys and Key West! For more information on the boycott, simply hover your cursor over the Social Media tab above and then click on Boycott tab.

Are you having any success with your boycott?
3:22 PM on July 3, 2014 
It is too early to say whether our boycott is a success. It has only been a couple of days since we used Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ to announce the start of our boycott of the Florida Keys and Key West. Plus, we just got our boycott page up and running on this website . . . and that was shortly after we posted our boycott video on YouTube which has been getting quite a number of views. However, I can point out that if you Google ?Boycott Key West,? the number 1 search result is our boycott video! Likewise, if you Google ?Boycott the Florida Keys,? our boycott video will also appear on the very first page of the search results!

Having thousands of supporters throughout the world is very, very impressive, but I think we need to get some celebrities to actively support our groups efforts to free Kris Helton for a crime he did not commit! If nothing else, they can help us promote our worldwide boycott of the Florida Keys and Key West!

Has anyone here ever considered asking Monica Lewinsky to help out? She is very smart and could be a real asset to this nonprofit group!
