Justice for Mabry Landor

WHO IS Mabry J. Landor III?

Mabry Landor was born on August 31 st 1980 in Houston, TX. He entered Texas Death Row in 2010 after being convicted of capital murder. Court records as well as other documentation show there are multiple contradictions leading up to the fact Mabry is legally innocent. A person is legally innocent when he is charged with the wrong crime and convicted of it.

 

MABRY´S TRIAL & APPEALS

At Mabry´s trial he was represented by an attorney who not only openly spoke of his client as guilty but also failed to prepare his client for the trial in a sufficient way. It´s no secret most of the attorneys of his county are constantly overworked, defending multiple clients at the same time, there for missing crucial deadlines and meetings and additionally are battling lack of time and limited financial resources. A fate Mabry suffered also. Insufficient legal representation in trial is a fate shared by many and sadly not uncommon in today´s justice system.

STATE APPEALS –

Mabry´s first appeal, the direct appeal, was denied which is pretty regular. Why is it “regular”? There´s no way it´s sufficiently arguing the issues properly such as ineffective assistance of counsel. This is because defendants can´t get their transcripts in time for the writ to be filed. Which is extreme hindrance. The state´s second appeal “state habeas”, Mabry was appointed counsel. A counsel who promised to provide him with his transcript, as well as allow him to participate in the fight for his life. Unfortunately, it was a lie. Mabry first realized this when his attorney stood up in the middle of their meeting and said “The man is dead!” interrupting Mabry while he was attempting to point out the things that didn´t add up. The attorney also went to family members under the pretense that Mabry had confessed to him in order to prepare an affidavit that would show his guilt. When Mabry expressed his stance on what the counsel had done, counsel then doctors the affidavit to an “indirect” show of guilt. By the time this was found out the writ was filed. Mabry immediately wrote everyone – judges, state bar, etc. to no avail. The writ stayed and the lawyer did as well. This was the year 2011. When Mabry´s counsel found out about his filings he stopped all communication with him and his family. Mabry didn’t hear from him again until 01. 2016. Five years had passed with not one response to his letters.

FEDERAL APPEAL –

Mabry is currently in the federal phase off his appeals where judge Melinda Harmon resides. Due to on-going investigations there is currently no further information accessible.

Eyewitness misidentification was a crucial, if not the most important factor in Mabry´s case.

OUR GOAL FOR MABRY

We believe that Mabry is innocent of the crime he was convicted of. Our hope is that with the on-going investigation of his case and a sufficient legal representation he´ll get a new trial in which the new found evidence can be presented and hopefully prove Mabry did not commit the crime he has been sitting on Death Row for. Imagine you had to spend years of your life waiting for your death when someone else committed the crime you´ve been incarcerated for. Imagine you were left alone by your lawyer, who´s supposed to be your voice and your guide through the legal jungle of trials, writs and deadlines. Imagine you had to leave your family alone, your kids, your parents knowing you could not come back just because you were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Imagine you get arrested out of one of the US most corrupt counties and charged with a crime because of your heritage and your criminal record. We feel deeply sorry for the loss of the officer harmed and killed in this crime and we don´t wish this pain and devastation upon anyone.
