This blog was created and is maintained by supporters of Efren Paredes, Jr. and committee members of The Injustice Must End (TIME). TIME is a citizens' committee created to help educate the public about the injustice surrounding the wrongful conviction of Efren Paredes, Jr., a 33-year-old Latino male who has been wrongly imprisoned since age 15.
Efren received three life sentences for a 1989 murder and armed robbery he did not commit in St. Joseph, Michigan, USA; a crime to which others have plead guilty and admitted involvement. He was an honor student at the time of his arrest with no previous criminal record, and has spent more time in prison that he did a free boy in society.
More information about this injustice is available at http://www.4efren.com/.
Part of our objective is to also generate additional support to help vindicate Efren of the false charges against him. You are encouraged to visit this blog to learn about all the latest efforts underway to help Efren's campaign for justice. We will also be posting information about how you can contribute to Efren's efforts as well.
Please share this blog with others, encourage them to participate in the dialogue about this miscarriage of justice, and ask them to become actively involved in helping end this ongoing human rights abuse.
There is no place in a civilized nation for such egregious cases of injustice to manifest. Lend us a few moments of your time to help correct this injustice. The life and future of an innocent 15-year-old depends on it.
