Welcome To MYLIFEplus25
The state of New Mexico refers to me as Mario Chavez, inmate 65079. In August of 2004 the state charged me with first degree murder, armed robbery and several counts of tampering with evidence. In 2006 a jury found me guilty of all charges and the honorable Richard Knowles sentenced me to life plus 25 years.
Here’s the problem: I didn’t kill anyone. I was denied my constitutional rights to a fair trial – Denied my right to confront my accuser in court
The reason that I’m even writing or talking about this isn’t just because the state’s judicial system is systematically denying me justice, it’s because I’m not the only one.
Wrongful convictions by most estimates are at 4 percent. And with about a million felony convictions in the U.S. each year, that means that for the last 16 years of me being wrongfully incarcerated, 640,000 men and women have likewise been wrongfully convicted and sentenced to prison. And less than one-half of one percent get exonerated each year.
MYLIFEplus25 is both my experience and my voice, calling for action and solidarity in my fight for freedom.
