Petition for Clemacy or Pardon for Jermaine S. Doss
HELP fight the wrongful, injustice and illegal conviction! The State of Virginia has paid $600.000 to hold a prisoner Jermaine S. Doss for a crime that Doss was never charged with nor was a lesser-included crime of what Doss was indicted and on trial for. Doss was indicted for capital murder for hire, statutory burglary, 2 counts of use of firearm and conspiracy. The offense of Accessory Before the Fact to First Degree Murder was neither charged nor brought by indictment. During arguments in chambers, prior to closing arguments, defense counsel, Curtis T. Brown and Michael L. Hockaday, vehemently objected to the inclusion of the Accessory Before the Fact charge as a lesser included offense to the Capital Murder for Hire charge, during which time Doss was not allowed to be present by the trial judge. The prosecution theory was Doss supposedly hired the killer Nathanial McGee to kill the victim James Webb. This led to Doss conviction for 1st degree murder. Doss was acquitted of the Capital Murder for Hire. If the jury was properly instructed, the underlined charges of Statuary burglary, 2 use of firearms and conspiracy would have been acquitted as well. These were acts McGee had supposedly did while carrying out the alleged murder for hire scheme. Once it was proven McGee was the killer and Doss had “no agreement” to carry out a murder for hire, all charges should have been dismissed. So now Doss is being held in prison for 1st degree murder without ever having a trial for 1st degree murder as accessory before the fact. This action by the Commonwealth and Judge Everret Martin denied Doss his constitutional rights (5th, 6th and 14th) and Due Process rights. All of the United States citizens have the rights which are notification of the nature and character, public trial for all crimes being accused for, and the right to confront his or her accuser or charge by way of a defense. But since the crime of 1st degree murder as accessory before the fact was given, Doss rested his defense and the Commonwealth rested and all witnesses called, Doss could not put up a defense. It’s like asking a person to defend themselves in a fight, boxing match, basketball game with their hands and feet tied behind their backs. It’s impossible. The action by the Norfolk Circuit Court Judge Martin made Doss indictment so defective; he could not even defend himself against newly added charge. Also not to mention that the killer McGee recanted and admitted that he lied and used Doss to get a 16 year plea agreement to avoid the death penalty. But yet, Doss is serving a life and 38 year sentence in Virginia that is a delayed death sentence, because there is no parole in Virginia. This is a clear case of a Miscarriage of Justice! This has never been addressed by any appeals court. The court refused to address the issue because the portion of Doss transcript containing the jury instructions was missing during the filing of Doss appeals. For the last 11 years, Doss has been subjected to the actions of Modern day slavery by the State of Virginia. Jermaine S. Doss has lost everything; family, friends and his business. He has also exhausted over $100,000 for legal defense, appeals, etc. Every day, we see people protesting, marching all over the news and in newspapers about protecting the United States Constitution rights of the people. We need to stand up and fight, fight, fight on Doss behalf to be given clemency by Gov. Robert McDonnell or be given a hearing by the Virginia Supreme Court or Norfolk Circuit Court to vacate the charges against Doss. This is a clear case that we the people can win and clear a wrongfully-convicted man (Jermaine Doss) name and give him back his freedom. We the People do have the power so let’s use it to correct this great miscarriage of justice. The family and friends of Jermaine S. Doss is his voice so let the country here us roar!
