Rodney Reed Petition

Rodney Reed is an African-American man whose case gained national attention as a compelling example of a possible wrongful conviction. In 1998, he was convicted and sentenced to death for the murder of Stacey Stites, a young white woman from Bastrop, Texas. The case relied heavily on circumstantial evidence, and over the years, numerous doubts have emerged regarding Reed's guilt. Forensic analysis of DNA evidence has raised serious questions about the timeline presented by the prosecution, pointing to another potential suspect. Advocates and legal experts have been fighting tirelessly for a reevaluation of his case and have highlighted issues of racial bias and flaws in the criminal justice system. The case of Rodney Reed continues to be a focal point for discussions on criminal justice reform and the pursuit of truth and fairness in the legal system.
