John G. Brown
Death Row - San Quentin California
My name is John G. Brown. I am an inmate
at San Quentin on Death Row.
I have been in prison for almost 20
years. I was arrested 8 June 1980 and accused of being in a bar shootout
with police. In June of 1982 I was found guilty in a trial in which my
attorney did nothing but sit by my side to say that
I was legally represented. I have since
had three dates on which to be executed and my second stay was just two
days before I was to be executed.
In July of 1996 I was given an Evidentiary
hearing on a Brady violation.
This is regarding the D.A.'s
failure to disclose exculpatory evidence or evidence in favor of the defense.
In October of 1997 the California Supreme Court gave me a complete reversal
of sentence. Since then the D.A. has
refiled the case. This case has been
retried in 1999 and I have been found
guilty again and am again on Death
Row having been resentenced to death
for a crime I didn't commit."
