Book Cover

 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.”

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.
