Panel 1

Daniel Villegas is free!

Daniel Villegas is now a free man after spending almost 20 years in prison for a crime he did not commit! In December 2013 the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals set aside his conviction after concluding he received ineffective assistance of counsel during the trial that sent him to prison.

He had Christmas and birthday presents waiting on him, and Fred Loya graciously kept his renowned light display up just for him. The celebrations may have been a bit late, but it’s a very merry Christmas and happy birthday for Daniel!

Panel 2

New trial ordered for Tim Howard!

Wonderful news coming out of Little River County, AR. Tim has been granted a new trial! We are ecstatic and Tim is so grateful to those who are helping work on his case directly and to those who continue to support him by raising awareness and sending positive thoughts and prayers.

We’ll keep you informed as things progress. Read more for a brief summary from our friend Mara Leveritt.

Panel 3

Daniel Risher has spent over twenty-one years in Arkansas prisons for a crime he did not commit

Testing that is currently ongoing may provide conclusive evidence that the biological evidence used to convict Daniel was inconclusive at best.

In 2012, Proclaim Justice became aware of Daniel’s case and, after researching it, became convinced of his innocence. We are currently working with Daniel and his defense team to develop the most effective way to bring awareness to his case and ultimately to win his freedom. Please check back in for updates concerning his case, and, when appropriate, calls to action.
