Jurors: Goff’s freedom should be restored, she should be allowed to return to her family

Four jurors from Belynda’s trial, the bailiff from her re-sentencing, and Judge Finch, who ruled that she should receive a new trial but was overturned by another court, have submitted letters which were included in Belynda’s clemency application. We have posted their letters in our Documents section of the website:

Judge Finch: “I do believe you were poorly represented at trial and that the circumstances of your case are unlikely to ever occur again.”

Four jurors: “I was a juror in State vs. Belynda Goff… After careful consideration, I am asking that you grant clemency to Ms. Goff. I feel her freedom should be restored and she should be allowed to return to her family.”

Bailiff from her re-sentencing: “I met Mrs. Goff while acting as bailiff at her re-sentencing, during which time I came to believe she had been wrongly convicted. I began to correspond with her in prison, and in all this time my belief in her innocence has only grown.”

Please add your voice to help bring Belynda home. Write to Governor Hutchinson and ask your friends and family to do the same.

    • I think all of this points to setting Belynda Goff’s release. The original “evidence” of a spot of blood, but could not be identified so it should have never been accepted as evidence.
