The Human Rights Coalition Presents...

23 Years of False Imprisonment and
Tainted Conviction At Hands of
Philadelphia District Attorney's Office

-PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT is an illegal act or failing to act, on the part of a prosecutor, especially an attempt to sway the jury to wrongly convict a defendant or to impose a harsher than appropriate punishment.

In front of the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office

-HUMAN RIGHTS COALITION hold responsible former Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne M. Abraham to readdress Mr. Coffey's tainted conviction 23 years ago under her administration.

For example:
* Tainted photo spread used for identification
* Prosecutorial misconduct
* Fabricated evidence
* Judicial misconduct
* Unreliable FBI informant
* Hoagie's name came up through a rogue police officer
* Affidavit of probable cause was tainted
* Police officer and prosecutor forged a subpoena
* Jury selection, verdict, deliberation, and crucial testimony of transcripts are missing

RE: Commonwealth v. Jerome Coffey, CP-51-CR-0441911-1993

Dear District Attorney Seth Williams:

We, the Human Rights Coalition, call for the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office to reopen the tainted conviction of the above-captioned case due to deep-seated concerns. For example: 1) crucial exculpatory trial transcripts were removed from official records oppose to missing [emphasis added], 2) prosecutorial, police, judicial misconduct [emphasis added], 3) unreliable federal informant [emphasis added].

In closing, we, the Human Rights Coalition, request that your office will reopen the tainted conviction against Mr. Coffey and correct this miscarriage of justice 23 years later.

Respectfully yours,
Human Rights Coalition

CC. Honarable Sheila A. Woods-Skipper (President Judge)
