3 Wrongly Imprisoned Ryan Ferguson Murder Conviction Overturned Set To Go Free after 12 yr

6 nov. 2013

Wrongly Imprisoned Ryan Ferguson Murder Conviction Overturned Set To Go Free after 12 yrs. COLUMBIA, Mo. — COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — A state appeals court panel on Tuesday overturned the murder conviction of a Missouri man who has maintained his innocence while serving a 40-year sentence for the 2001 slaying and robbery of a newspaper sports editor.
The appeals court ruled that the prosecutor’s office withheld evidence from defense attorneys for Ryan Ferguson that could have aided him during his trial for the strangling and beating death of Columbia Daily Tribune sports editor Kent Heitholt.
“Under the facts and circumstances of this case, we conclude that Ferguson did not receive a fair trial. His verdict is not worthy of confidence,” Western District appeals court Judge Cynthia Martin wrote in the 3-0 decision.
Ferguson’s case has been the subject of numerous national TV news shows, in part, because his 2005 conviction came after his high school classmate, Chuck Erickson, testified that he had recalled from dreams several years later that the two of them had been involved in Heitholt’s slaying after a late night of Halloween partying.
Erickson received a 25-year sentence as part of a plea agreement for testifying against Ferguson.
But during an April 2012 court hearing, Erickson recanted his incrimination of Ferguson and said his memory of that night was hazy because he had been using drugs and alcohol. During that hearing, former Tribune janitor Jerry Trump also said he had testified falsely during Ferguson’s trial when he identified Ferguson and Erickson as the two men he saw in the newspaper’s parking lot where Heitholt was killed in the early morning of Nov. 1, 2001.
Cole County Judge Dan Green declined to grant Ferguson a new trial last year. Ferguson then took his case to the appeals court, which heard arguments this September. The appeals panel said Ferguson should be released if prosecutors have not filed notice of a retrial within 15 days after the court issues its formal mandate, which could take several weeks.
Ferguson’s attorney, Kathleen Zellner, said she filed a motion Tuesday seeking his release on bond while prosecutors decide whether to re-try him. She visited Ferguson in a Jefferson City prison and later read a handwritten statement from him thanking supporters during a Columbia news conference with Ferguson’s parents and girlfriend.
“We’ve won a major battle, however the war continues,” Ferguson’s statement said. “I need your help now more than ever. Look forward to sitting at the Thanksgiving table with my family if justice permits.”
His parents, Bill and Leslie Ferguson, expressed relief by the court ruling, vowed to try to also exonerate Erickson and renewed a public plea for tips that could help lead to a new suspect.
“We are looking forward to that day when he can walk out of there and truly be free,” said Leslie Ferguson, a retired school teacher.

5 From the 60 Minutes archives: The true story behind “Just Mercy”

Back to menu

9 jan. 2020

In 1992, Ed Bradley reported that the wrong man might have been sitting on Alabama’s death row. “Just Mercy,” a movie about the case, opens in theaters this week.


Can we all just take a moment to recognize Ed Bradley’s reporting? Absolutely impeccable and impressive.
Shakethia Arrington
The casting for Just Mercy was impeccable

This story right here is why there’s so much distrust in our justice system. Right now Trump is appointing federal judges at a record pace to life time appointments. Moscow Mitch can’t pass legislation because he’s too busy confirming Trump’s fed judge picks. Americans and specifically Black Americans can’t afford another 4 years of Trump.
They don’t care about facts when it comes to blacks

I just watched the movie ” just mercy” and I was literally shook up so deeply inside my heart hurt i cried threw out the whole movie. Our justice system is so set up for complete failure. It’s so very traumatic. watching this movie makes me wanna make a difference & to make a change to be wanna be or so I should say to be a better person to know how an innocent person’s life is just thrown away. It’s all based around politics and set up elections its makes you really think about everything in your life how It’s all been a lie everything they have ever taught us or told us we know the difference of right and wrong I think that is something that we are born with it it’s called a conscience I truly believe that at a young age we already know the difference of right and wrong OH HOW WE WALK AROUND WITH OUR EYES WIDE SHUT… I just want to say I was deeply touched by this movie I mean deeply touched I was moved to make a change …. and with that being said may God have grace on the soul for those who have decided whether or not a person should live or die I dont know how you sleep at night but one day as you have judged…. You yourself will be judged….I know that I’m gonna make a difference weather no one sees it or no one knows it. I’ll know it… I dont know where to start in the very cruel world… So I’m going to start with myself, I’m going to be a better person starting today… And my deepest sympathy goes out to Herbert and his family the man in the movie who is electrocuted when should have been placed in it psychiatric ward because the system failed him we done that to him in Vietnam in a war we should have never had but that’s another story…. this movie has inspired me… FALSELY-N-GRAVED… to the people of our nation & to the people of our country we need to wake the Fu@% -UP… to those of us who can make a change need to make it… Its never too late to do the right thing… make a difference everybody’s lives matter… We are all Gods children it’s time to come together as one

Watching BEFORE Just Mercy. Bryan Stevenson is so young and exuberant in this clip! He’s a real life superhero.
Rhonda Lewis
Just Mercy is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen and many of the scenes were sometimes too much to bear. Many more stories like this need to be told and I applaud Bryan Stevenson’s courage, as well as actors like Jamie Foxx and Michael B. Jordan, who were bold enough to tell this story to the world. While this story is disgustingly shocking, this is only one of many stories like this and is still all too common today. I’ve dealt with the state of Alabama’s court system first-hand and personally suffered decades of unjustifiable injustice through their judicial system, because of false testimony from people who I’d never met. Every time I think about the inhumane treatment people of color have received based solely on false testimony and people’s biases, I can’t help but be filled with anger and rage. There are a lot of ignorant and racist bullies and cowards who hide behind the law, who’ve tragically condemned and imprisoned innocent people. Whether they know it or not, God is always watching and he’ll give these wicked people their just desserts one day..

Speaking to the world. I know you have a good life, money, cars, homes, etc. Have you thought about where you would spend eternity if something was to suddenly happen to you and you died? Would your money and material things be able to save you from where you would go if you leave here without Jesus Christ? Have you thought about it? Does it even cross your mind at times? Do you try to hide the fact that one day you will leave here ready or not? Do you really care whether Jesus Christ loves you or not and that he died for your sins and rose again for your justification to free you? Are you thinking about obeying his plan of salvation according to Acts 2:38, John 3:5? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Do you have time in your busy schedule to really seek him? Isaiah 55:6, Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near. Many are leaving here every day. Well, my friends, no matter who we are, no matter what we possess, we can’t take it with us, but we can take Christ’s love and mercy and grace with us. Don’t let the love of this world block you from the love of God. The love of God will always outlast the love of this world. 1 John 2:15, Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. Remember, you don’t have to spend your eternity with the devil. I just thought I would warn you before it’s too late! God bless you!

I just watched the most powerful movie. It deeply saddens me that this man lost 6 years of his life. And another one lost 30 years!

I cried so hard when Herbert died 😭😭

He snitched on the police. Free this man. Racism is real in america. Hate will be the demise of those that hate themselves. Disease in the body is formed from hatred. So pitiful.

I saw this on the airplane and I cried from the beginning and end. Beginning because of the hatred, treatment, fear that they faced nack then and STILL FACING TODAY. Racism I believe is worse now than before because we have more technology,history,knowledge,education from the past mistakes and we still continue to CHOOSE to ACT like this regardless. Not just color but Gender, Nationalities etc. This broke my heart, I cried in the end for his freedom,his patience through it all.His sanity. If I we’re there I probably would have gotten arrested for flicking the racist off after his freedom. The dedication of that Attorney,love,passion,dedication,risk He was followed,shook down,threatened and more and continued to free these people for not a dime. We need More like that, have that same heart for our neighbors, we turned greedy,selfish,self centered. He took on the fire and odds against him. This movie moved me and disgusted me. A wonderful movie that was much needed reminder of the progress from past to now but the reminder we still NEED WORK This should not be happening now .

Today I saw the movie JUST MERCY based on this story. Glad I found the 60Minutes story that’s referenced in the movie. Excellent film. Jamie Foxx is masterful as always. Michael B. Jordan does a fine job as well. Supporting actors play their roles wonderfully also. And the script is full of thought-provoking lines. “The opposite of poverty is not wealth, it’s justice.”

No one can convince me to destroy a man’s life. Bill Hooks if you are alive, I pray you make your peace with God and this man family for the pain you caused.

I cant believe the sheriff remained the sheriff of that county until he retired in 2019…THAT WAS JUST LAST YEAR😳😳😳…I wonder how many more of us was put to death on account of him.😤
The Prosecutor called a witness a Snitch! Damn shame!
Tim Steffen
This reminds me of the movie The Fugitive with Harrison Ford the prosecutors in that movie were just as ignorant and stupid there like he was convicted in a court of law that’s all we need. Point blank end of story convicted. No evidence needed.
Bob Devine
How is it that there can be so much intentional obstruction to justice with those charged to uphold the law and everyone can see who these characters are and yet they are not held accountable for their actions? How can racially biased systems be torn down when there are little to no consequences for those who willfully thumb their noses at equal justice?
Elise Renée
The way he said could sleep just fine at night if the man was executed is just disgusting…what a horrible human being
Bastiaan Tendoornkaat
Always weird to see how in the 80’s and 90’s an 18 year old, looked like how a 40 year old looks nowadays!!!
Raenell Jones
I just saw the movie Just Mercy. Awesome actors and this story had me crying and then cheering in the theater.
Fatima Fernandes Vicente
What happened to the person who forced Ralph Myers to give a false accusation that got Walter Macmillan in the death row in the first place?
MONIQUE Franklin
I just watched Just Mercy over the weekend because it’s free for the month of June/2020 on most streaming platforms. I watched it on YouTube movies. It was such a good emotional movie. Jamie Foxx and Michael B. Jordan did an amazing job. So glad Johnny D. was given his freedom. I hope he sued the state, county, and police department.
Destany Jackson
Before I watch the movie I need to know the background of the story!!
Bessie King
This attorney was threatening the man who recanted his story. He’s threaten him with retaliation from the police not the prisons
Wi Ca
They framed the man. Including both those dudes that was facing crimes.

Our justice system needs to be completely looked over and see what cases have been complete lies.

I bet she was killed by a town favorite. Seems like a lot of home cooking in this case.

The prosecutor makes my skin crawl.
Hopefully this innocent young lady be given REAL justice one day. God saw what happened that day.🥀😔✨🤎

The fact that this video has 886k views and only 10k likes says a lot.

What’s funny is this wasn’t that long ago and its still happening. This is reason for protesting.
Joe Smith
Is he a “snitch” for the prosecution or a “whistleblower” against the prosecution, either way he looks like the posecution(criminals) is making him pay for it?!
Just Give him lie detector test. Now thats its available.

Lui Vilisoni
I hate watching things like this, knowing this is not a movie, and is real life 😔 terrible.
Hilcias Palacios
I am a senior with a clean record, I do not know which one scares me the most: or a corrupted law or the justice being unable to serve its purpose. The law is supposed to serve the justice. Not the opposite.

“The jury heard the story and they believed it”. Nothing about the truth, just spinning the right story to get a jury to believe it.
United States of Injustice 👏👏

Jeff Machia
Anyone else wanna absolutely deck the district attorney?
Congrats to 60 Minutes for a very level investigation talking to all who would go on camera; bringing this injustice to the world It is incredible that Bryan Stevenson was able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that McMillian did not commit the crime. The district attorney still with all the facts stated he would be OK with McMillian losing his life to save face for the government. Sadly this is not an isolated case. The innocence project; Bryan Stevenson and others have my gratitude and support for taking the time to assist and give a voice yo those who would not have one.

lmaoooooo I bet Chapman felt like a clown when he hired ABI Investigators to investigate McMillian’s case for more evidence against him but found out he was completely innocent
D. Hasan
This is an absolute travesty! Imagine being imprisoned for years, possibly even being sentenced to death because of outright lies and corruption!! Shameful and disgraceful.
@13:03 so many brothers messing up with no good white women. It’s crazy

Hooks breathing was real heavy once the reporter started pressing him. Noticed the guy in the blue button up laughing.
Eric Sanchez
I was 5 1/2 years old back in later 1992. Crazy 😳😳😳😳
I love to go back after watching a true story movie and see all the people in real life. My heart broke on Mr. Herberts part 😔. They watered down the DA in the movie though, right here he looks and sounds horrible.
