Today, Vincent Simmons is celebrating his 63rd birthday-the 38th in prison for crimes he can prove he did not commit. He does not ask for gifts. There is only one humble wish he wants to come true:
In a circular, he begs his supporters for “put[ing] aside any past disagreements, or ill feelings toward each other” and to reunite.
He writes, “We all need to get behind the book” Louisiana v. Vincent Simmons: Frame-up in Avoyelles Parish, because it “represents my team’s most positive and powerful force for change.”
“Together, we will win, but divided we will lose!”
