I have read this book thoroughly and though it is hard for people to admit, especially those who work for the system, errors are made every day. Mr. Simmons never received a fair trial. Fairness is the cornerstone of the American criminal justice system. Thank the Lord for people like Katja Pumm, who see things for how they truly are. Even though she is not from the USA, she knows our system is broke and needs fixing. She simply requests a proper trial. It seems like that is like asking for the Sun and Moon! Mr. Simmons proclaims his innocence. He is innocent until, and only until, he is PROVEN guilty in a court of law beyond a reasonable doubt. Ms. Pumm provides us plenty of reasonable doubt in her debut book, but above all, she clearly shows that Mr. Simmons was denied a fair trial. Until he has a fair trial, he is still innocent. Keep up the great work, Ms. Pumm!

 Alexander Cameron of Virginia (USA) writes concerning the book “Louisiana v. Vincent Simmons: Frame-up in Avoyelles Parish”:

“… exculpatory evidence can sometimes become the victim of ‘willful blindness’ and the modus operandi for this style of blindness is money and I’m more than certain you are in full possession of the following knowledge:
Once it has been estabilshed in a court of law that the State (i.e. the Prosecutor) or one of its expert(s) witnesses have engaged in unlawful conduct to procure a conviction, that conviction and any other conviction that particular public official was involved in must be overturned or retried which will cost the State millions not-to-mention the civil suits that are sure to follow, therefore, it’s a no brainer from the perspective of the State: ‘It’s cheaper to keep’em’ i.e. let (him) die in prison before we take responsibility.”

There is an interesting discussion with Judge Mark Jeansonne of Avoyelles Parish on the Innocent in Prison Project International forum about Vincent Simmons’ case and the book Louisiana v. Vincent Simmons: Frame-up in Avoyelles Parish. Does anyone want to join in and vote on whether or not you want Simmons to be granted an evidentiary hearing or re-trial? Or do you agree with Judge Jeansonne who chose to vote for “Keep Vincent Simmons in prison”?

Judge Mark Jeansonne’s re-election campaign of 2008 received contributions in excess of the contribution limit from family Knoll. See the Louisiana Board of Ethics’ order here.  “Eddie” Knoll and Jeannette Theriot Knoll (the parents of Edward Knoll, Jr., Edmond Knoll, and Triston Knoll) prosecuted Vincent Simmons in 1977.

The news in my mail box today is: “In an effort to combat childhood obesity and summer learning loss, the Department of Justice joined the U.S. Department of Education to address young audiences throughout the nation as part of the Let’s Read. Let’s Move. campaign.”

My humble comment is, “Bravo, that’s a good thing.”

The book “Louisiana v. Vincent Simmons: Frame-up in Avoyelles Parish” deeply goes into a variety of issues. In the center of the story are three teenagers whose lives changed forever on a Sunday in May 1977. The criminal case puts the reader on a roller coaster ride. The more one reads, the more the world seems to be upside down. It provides insight into a world most people do not know much about. It shows what can happen to children and their lives when adults fail in their judgments.

Louisiana v. Vincent Simmons” is written in simple language and I think one can recommend the book to 15+ year-old-readers. Happy Summer Holiday!

Louisiana v. Vincent Simmons: Frame-up in Avoyelles Parish

Book Cover

Hello,

My name is Katja Pumm. Thank you for visiting the Louisiana v. Vincent Simmons blog. It is meant to be a follow-up on the true crime book Louisiana v. Vincent Simmons: Frame-up in Avoyelles Parish, which was published on April 6, 2011. I worked many years on the case and its background trying to find out what really happened. One thing is certain: There is not anything like a fully complete story. The book only can contain what I knew by the time I submitted the manuscript for printing. Because I do not possess any clairvoyant abilities, and the case is still unfinished business, I intend to add relevant news to the story on this blog.

Louisiana v. Vincent Simmons: Frame-up in Avoyelles Parish reveals how the political system furthers wrongful convictions and why exculpatory evidence does not always free innocent prisoners. I think the About page is a good place to start reading. Visit the book trailer and have a look inside the 376 pages on the Preview page. A case summary with documents and more are on the Innocent in Prison Project International website at http://cases.iippi.org/vincent-alfred-simmons/.

The blog enables you to comment each post. So, if there is something that comes to your mind while reading my lines and you want to share it, I would be happy to read from you here.
