We received documents from Tyrend Goins, who has been in Nevada's prison system for 17 years on a charge which was recently nullified due to newly discovered evidence, exculpating him from the original charge against him.
Tyrend is however still in prison
! This cannot be right! Nevada is holding a man whose charge was nullified. Surely NDOC should not let this injustice and this costly situation remain as it is! The Judge even granted Tyrend's Amended 28 U.S.C. par 2241 Motion in September of 2014
, and orders that he is immediately released from custody prison.
Here is what Tyrend wrote that was posted on the SF Bay View website
on May 27th, 2014:
"The truth is out that I did not kill Melvener Winston
. MRSA was the cause of her passing. I want my mother’s side to
know the truth. My six children and five grandchildren want to meet
My grandfather is Joseph Dillion. My grandmother
is Kay Francis. They lived in the San Francisco area. My mother,
Brenda, was the first of their eight children, who were born between
1957 and 1969 in San Francisco General Hospital. The only other names I
remember are Nadeen and Darlene.
I’m waiting to go back to court to be vindicated and released. If you can help us find our family, please email [email protected]
or write to me: Tyrend Goins, Sr., 59050, NNCC, P.O. Box 7000, Carson City, NV 89702."
Below are the documents as hyperlinked above. We ask those in power to investigate this injustice and to not allow an innocent man to be incarcerated one day longer!
