“PHILLY D.A. EPISODE I:” LARRY KRASNER TAKES OFFICE IN LANDSLIDE, FIRES 31 A.D.A.’S, BEGINS ENDING CASH BAIL

Editor: The first episode of “Philly D.A.” on PBSaired on April 20, 2021,  was published on YouTube, so VOD is providing it here for our readers to watch. There are eight episodes, to be aired on coming Tuesdays at 9 PM EST. Please be sure to watch. This is a stunning documentary which validates years of stories in Voice of Detroit regarding wrongful convictions in Michigan.

VOD has called for charges and disciplinary action against police and assistant prosecutors responsible for such convictions, with no action to date. This may be the ONLY way to stop such horrific miscarriages of justice, which have resulted in THOUSANDS of people still serving up to 50 years in prison, estimated at up to 30 percent and more of MDOC’s population.

Philly D.A.

WRONGFULLY CONVICTED IN MICHIGAN: (L to R) Thelonious Searcy, Darrell Ewing, Derrico Searcy, Ricky Rimmer-Bey, Carl Hubbard, David Shelton, and Temujin Kens

See links to VOD’s most recent stories on wrongful convictions in Wayne, Oakland and  St. Clair Counties below. The men in the photos above are still incarcerated in the MDOC, EXCEPT for Thelonious “Shawn” Searcy (see photos below), released on bond April 20, pending the Wayne County Prosecutor’s decision on appeal.

Thelonious Searcy with his attorney Michael Dezsi (l) and (r) with legal advisor Travis Herndon, who worked with Searcy on the 2016 pro se motion which led to his release on bond April 20, 2021.

VOD broke Searcy’s story and followed up with numerous articles beginning in 2017. Admitted hitman Vincent Smothers testified during a 2018 evidentiary hearing that HE committed the murder for which Shawn served 17 years in the MDOC. Other testimony at that hearing and in a Michigan Court of Appeals ruling exposed the deceitful roles trial judge Timothy Kenny and AP Patrick Muscat played in the frame-up. 

VOD also covered the stories of many of those released after intervention by the Wayne County Conviction Integrity Unit. VOD stories on those released and those still incarcerated include the names of police and prosecutors responsible for the wrongful convictions, located after VOD’s research.
