Kris Helton has just concluded a three-hour meeting with Rev. Derrick Moseley, a representative for Rev. Charles Williams, the Bethel Gospel Tabernacle, and the United Pentecostal Council Assemblies of God, to gauge his interest in helping them create an innocence project which he can later head following his release from prison.
It is anticipated that the innocence project will operate much like Centurion Ministries, Inc. (www.CenturionMinistries.org), using a highly specialized team of paralegals, legal investigators, and attorneys to carefully screen, review, investigate, and present the state and federal courts with credible claims of actual innocence and manifest injustice.
However, this innocence project will also assist the innocent and others wrongfully convicted in their efforts to seek parole and request executive clemency when relief is not readily available though the courts, lend a hand with their reentry and transition after being released from prison, and help them obtain compensation for their wrongful incarcerations.
Of course, Rev. Moseley believes that Kris is uniquely qualified to create and head an innocence project like this because he has a formal legal and business education, invaluable personal experience with the investigation and presentation of his very own claim of actual innocence, and more than two decades of unprecedented success in helping other state prisoners with their claims of actual innocence and manifest injustice.
