Illegally Incarcerated By The State Of Mississippi Since 1999

Mississippi Department of Corrections

My name is Jeffery Wayne Wansley and as of now, I’ve been unlawfully held in custody for over 14 years by the State of Mississippi for a crime I didn’t commit!

At trial, the prosecution ,its witnesses, the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics (MBN) and a convicted felon/drug abuser with pending charges, alleged that it used a $100 bill of Official State Funds, bearing serial number #AH30644253A, and a 60” audio cassette tape, in an undercover sting operation, however, no one has ever seen or heard any of this alleged evidence, and there is no documentation from the Mississippi Crime Lab, proving that it ever existed.

To prove his innocence Wansley submitted the above mentioned serial numbers to the United States Dept. of the Treasury, under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), and that agency verified that the serial numbers came off of a $20.00 bill. See: Wrongfully Convicted attached hereto.

Wansley has been proving his innocence for years, according to law, the United States Constitution, plain error, and newly discovered evidence.

However, the several courts here in the State of Mississippi and the Fifth Circuit has failed to adhere to the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution and laws of the State of Mississippi, and deny and dismiss every legal proceeding Wansley has ever filed, for over 14 years.

On February 20, 2012 the Attorney General’s office, made the following statement to CNN: “Our office has the singular responsibility to not only ensure that the guily are punished, but that the innocent are set free.” 

If that is the case, ask attorney Jim Hood (601) 359-3680, why is his office fighting to keep Jeffery Wansley incarcerated for a crime he didn’t commit?

Wrongful convictions are the ultimate breakdown to the system. Prosecutors will almost never admit they made a mistake. The ones that do are very rare, and should absolutely be recognized in the appropriate manner when they do. For the rest, the truth is not always pretty, but it is what it is, and it should be acknowledged no matter what the professional consequences or embarrassment it. A man’s life is worth much more than the tragic and ill conceived notion that one must always appear to be right and mistake free in the execution of his/her office. We have lost sight of this as a society, and we need to get back to the custom and practice that justice is indeed colorblind, and that every is on equal footing at the courthouse. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
