James Prindle 15 yr.old child tried as an adult ....Needs our Help
I am not taking sides either way .... None of us where there.I do know the chicken will come home to roost.I do believe it is criminal to try a child as an adult then warehouse this child with adults without offering rehabilitation .James needs tender loving care so he can returned to society ,humanly and live out his life as a productive citizen .I refuse to accept as a society we toss the baby out with the bath water .James is a living breathing tender soul who has felt the wrath of hell.Everyone deserves a second chance at life are we a toss away society-Country?
Please take a moment and sign petition thank you it seeks a proper investigation ....

This is James Prindle's statement, that he wanted to make to the court, after the jury's verdict was read to him by Judge Carter (please see note after):
The person who is speaking to you is not guilty. The true individual who committed this unspeakable act against my little sister is walking the streets free and I sit here being punished—possibly for the rest of my life—for an act I did not commit.
I understand the court has an obligation to the public, but its highest duty is for justice. How is it justice when an innocent child is convicted?
I also understand the prosecution has a job to do. But when a person is wrongfully convicted, what good is served to the community when the person who really assaulted my sister is walking the streets in freedom and I suffer with its loss?
My stepfather Jefferson got everything he wanted: me out of his life and he gets my mom all to himself. I’ve been hurt, abused, deserted, and abandoned by my family and it’s hard to accept this, and this verdict, when this is what I’ve lived since I was little.
I would never do what I am accused of doing to my sister. I loved her and I still love and miss my family. I am innocent and I pray that one day soon my innocence will be proved to everyone, most of all, to Jeff Sanders.
*Note* James was found guilty by the jury on 6/22/2012. When the jury came back with it's verdict, at 5:30 pm, James had already been taken back to the jail. Judge Carter did not wish to hold the jury up, for James to be brought back to court, so the verdict was read, without James being present.
I was the one who had to tell him, via the phone that night. It was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life.
James was not read the verdict in court, until the following Monday.
This is James thanking all of YOU, his supporters
