California State Parole Board, Governor Jerry Brown, Justice Thelton Henderson, 9th Circuit Court of Appeals

It is time for Oba Frelimo to come home, he has been in Prison since he was 15 years old, and much of that time was in California's Special Housing Unit (SHU). He has spent more time than murderers and rapist after being tricked into signing a plea deal for a crime he did not commit. He was 16 years old and driving a car which killed an innocent woman in San Francisco. He was originally charged with Involuntary Vehicular Manslaughter in 1991, which he believed he was pleading to, when he was seventeen. He signed under the advice of his attorney who did not tell him the plea was a life sentence for 2nd Degree Murder. Several release dates have passed, with the last being in 2007 and now at 38 years old, he is fighting for his freedom. He has served more than a life sentence in California Prisons, with much of the time being spent in the Special Housing Unit. He takes responsibility for what happened back then and is ready to be a contributing member of society.

Signed,

Anita Wills
