About me:When Johnnie Lee Savory was 14 years old, he was falsely accused and unjustly convicted for double homicide in his hometown of Peoria, Illinois. In 2006, after spending 30 years in prison, Savory was granted parole and released.
Though a free man today, society still considers Savory an ex-felon, which is why he is asking Governor Rod Blagojevich to order DNA testing of the evidence that was used to convict him.
To encourage Blagojevich to act and to shine a light on what he calls the "awkward wrath of a broken criminal justice system," Johnnie is asking you to join his fight.
Check out these videos, where Johnnie tell his story
Part 1 Tortured into a false confession
Part 2 Sentenced to 50-100 years
Part 3 A New Trial
Part 4 A battle is won, but the fight continues. Johnnie's crede: Get busy living, or get busy dying
Why won't Peoria State's Attorney order DNA testing for Johnnie Lee Savory?
Who I'd like to meet:People who want to fight for justice.
