Support for Christy Phillips

FIRST LETTER

We, the friends, family and supporters of Christy Phillips are requesting that Govenor Jerry Brown review Christy Phillips’ case, as she is but one of many juvenile’s unjustly serving life without the possibility of parole. Christy, like other innocent JLWOP’s, was wrongly convicted due to authorities who blatantly violated her constitutional rights and extracted a false confession through intimidation, manipulation and scare tactics.

 

Below are a few of the Constitutional Right’s Violations Christy suffered at the hands of authorities:

  • Christy was convicted solely on her false confession. There was no physical evidence, forensics or DNA linking Christy to the crime. There was a person at the scene of the crime who was never charged. The coerced video taped confession was all the “evidence” the prosecution had.

  • She was denied the right to have a parent or legal counsel present during her interrogation. It is also important to note that Christy was 15 years old at the time of questioning by officers and was suffering from mental disabilities.

  • Christy was denied her Constitutional Right to remain silent.

After 13 years of being locked up for a crime she did not commit, it is time that Christy receive justice. We are requesting she either get clemency or immediate parole.

In support of other innocent JLWOP’s, we are requesting you pass Bill SB260 that would assist prisoners sentenced as juvenile’s to have a second chance at life, which they deserve.

SB260 is smart legislation and it is the right time for California to support this kind of change. Thank you for your support of it.

Sincerely,

Signed

SECOND LETTER

I, __________________________, support Christy Phillips and I am writing Govenor Jerry Brown to tell him to review Christy’s case, and to pass Bill SB260 which will allow some juvenile’s serving life without the possibility of parole a chance for re-sentencing after serving 10 years. This bill is a crucial step to bring about justice for wrongly convicted JLWOP’s like Christy. Christy, like other innocent JLWOP’s, was wrongly convicted due to authorities who blatantly disregarded the law and violated her constitutional rights, by doing so, they were able to extract a false confession through intimidation, manipulation and scare tactics. If her mother or lawyer were allowed to be present during the interrogation, Christy would be free and there would be no need for this letter.

Below are some of the Constitutional Right’s Violations Christy suffered at the hands of authorities:

  • Christy was convicted solely on her false confession. There was no physical evidence, forensics or DNA linking Christy to the crime. There was a person at the scene of the crime who was never charged. The coerced video taped confession was all the “evidence” the prosecution had.

  • She was denied the right to have a parent or legal counsel present during her interrogation. It is also important to note that Christy was 15 years old at the time of questioning by officers and was suffering from mental disabilities.

  • Christy was denied her Constitutional Right to remain silent.

After 13 years of being locked up for a crime she did not commit, it is time that Christy receive justice. We are requesting she either get clemency or immediate parole.

In support of other innocent JLWOP’s, we are requesting you pass Bill SB260 that would assist prisoners sentenced as juvenile’s to have a second chance at life, which they deserve.

Thanks you for your support of this important legislation.

My name is Christy Clinton Phillips

Often when a Female prisoner is seen by a doctor In prison she is told that nothing is wrong with her, or she is misdiagnosed due to carelessness on her behalf  off the doctor.

From the time she explain’s her symptoms till the time the doctor gets back to her, moths has gone by or it is a point when the illness is past effective treatment.

Often times when women prisoners go out to the local hospital for surgical procedures, they are stitched incorrectly or it is discovered that surgical instruments are left inside and stitched in, by the inside the inmate by the doctor performing the operation causing the inmate infections, difficult healing permanent damageand needless pain and suffering.

It is a know fact amongst the woman in California  prisons that they are dehumanized and mistreated while out on medical by local hospitals and prison hospital alike .

Elderly female prisoners are often verbally abused and neglected by nursing staff in the prison infirmary due to impatience and the common view of the pubic that prisoners don’t deserve treatment because they have been covicted of a felony.

These elderly female inmates languish in cold isolated rooms in the infirmary called (SNIF) in filthy diapers dieing from cancer and suffering from  alzheimer’s disease , some of these woman are paralyzed from the neck dowm and are unable to care for them selves and comepletely depend on the nursing staff to change bathe feed and excersize them …. Instead these helpless woman are met with abuse and denied visits from their loved ones repeatedly although some of them are on there death beds.

This is the land of constant pain and suffering where human beings are slowly tortured to death,

I ask each and every individual in the world to put your self  in the shoes of any one of these woman , seriously how would you feel ? what would you do if this was waht your life is day and night ? 

How would you fell if this was happening to some one you love or if you found out this is what happen to them in there final moments before they died ? I am not elderly or suffering from alzehimers desease or just had surgery that went wrong , but this is the reality of what my future holds . I was pretty much sentenced to spend the rest of my natural life in prison when i had just turned 15-teen-years old .After my conviction, the jury made a statement to the press they are not even sure if I committed the crime because there was no evidence and their was another possible perpetrator  who was never charged with the offense . the jury stated that it was video taped confession that the prosecution played to them numerous times . (as her case against me was based solelyon this confession )

The jury member started if it wasn’t  for that tape it would have been a “toss up ” between me and the other “girl ” who was never brought to justice .

My conviction was completely based on a coerced confession conducted by Detective loveless and his SGT in violation of my rights . I was pressured and manipulated by interrogating officers

into waiving my rights and confessing to a crime that I originally reported. This resulted in an unjust conviction and sentence in 2002 after my arrest in July,2000. I will not be silent about the injustice and prevalent corruption in our criminal justice system and its habit of wrongfully convicting children and adults alike

. I will SCREAM for this to change until my final breathe…can you?

About Christy

My name is Christy Clinton Phillips. I am being held in prison under violations of my civil and political rights I need help in fighting for the protection of these rights. The issue of my case in short form, is as follows: I was 15 yrs. old when my crime occurred and was sentenced to life in prison. According to the UN INTERNATIONAL COVENANT ON CIVIL AND POLITICAL RIGHTS(to which the United States is a party to) AND CRC(Convention/Committee on the rights of the child). a life sentence for a child is explicitly prohibited under article 37(a) of CRC and(article 6 the right to life, survival and development) paragraph 11 and paragraph 77.

Under article 14(g)4 the court procedure must be such as will take account of a juvenile persons age and the desire ability of promoting their rehabilitation. In my case, the court did not take my age into consideration nor did they promote rehabilitation by sentencing me to LIFE in prison. “LIFERS” in prison are mostly denied access to rehabilitative services because of the lengthy sentence. Article 14(g) also prohibits law enforcement to cause a child to be compelled to testify against himself or to confess guilt. In my case, I reported a homicide, I was held in the lounge area of the Rialto Police Station over night and interrogated the next day. I requested to the interrogating officers three times if I could be taken to a telephone to contact my mother I was told that I could not contact anyone outside the police station until after I was interrogated.

After being held away from home and in a police station over night, I was intimidated confused and tired so under duress I cooperated with them I was under the impression that I would not be allowed to go home until after I cooperated with them. During my interrogation the detectives made it clear that they wanted me to admit guilt and would not end the interrogation until after I had done so, I did and was convicted and sentenced to life in prison based on that coerced confession.
