We thank the Philadelphia DA’s Office for its thorough review of John’s case and the many people who worked with us and John on his defense, especially our pro bono partners Thomas Gallagher, Hannah McPhelin, and Christen Tuttle of Pepper Hamilton. And, of course, thanks to our donors, who make this life-changing work possible.

We send heartfelt gratitude to our former Executive Director, Marissa Boyers Bluestine, Alan Tauber of Lindy & Tauber, and Private Investigator Dennis Crosson for their relentless pursuit of Chester’s freedom.

Many thanks to Ed Foster of Alva & Shuttleworth LLC, one of our former interns, for all his work for Robert.

What a wonderful week!
