Person Set for March Texecution May Be Innocent
Is Texas about to execute an innocent man? Pablo Melendez, Jr. is scheduled for execution March 14. Even the victim's mother thinks he is innocent.
Melendez’s case is alarming because he has a strong innocence claim. His case is surrounded by evidence of prosecutorial misconduct, conflicting witnesses, and undeniable facts which point to his innocence. Perhaps most compelling, is the fact that Gracie Jett, mother of victim Michael Sanders, is convinced that Melendez did not murder her son.
- There is no physical evidence tying him to the crime.
- One victim of the crime described his attacker to police. A composite sketch was drawn of this suspect - a sketch which does not resemble Melendez at all.
- He was convicted largely on the testimony of gang members and jail house informants.
