Want to help Julius Jones, now on Oklahoma’s death row, get a new trial?

ACTION ALERT:  In 1999, Julius Darius Jones, an African American 19-year-old former high school basketball state champion and star football player, was arrested days after a businessman was shot to death in Edmond, OK. At the time of the murder, Julius was a student at the University of Oklahoma on a partial academic scholarship, hoping to make the basketball team.

His current attorneys believe Jones was wrongfully convicted and now have new evidence that they hope will cause the State to grant Jones a new trial. Jones has consistently maintained his innocence.

ABC has produced a docu-series, “The Last Defense,” examining Jones’ case.  The episodes can be watched online. The final episode will air Tues., July 24 at 9p. (CST).
