An appeal for Jamie Snow was heard on Tuesday May 12,  by the Fourth DistrictAppellate Court, in Springfield, IL. Snow was convicted in 2001 for the 1991 murder of William Little. Little was the victim of an apparent robbery while working as a gas station attendant in Bloomington, IL. Snow has always maintained his innocence and says he was at home eating dinner with his family at the time of the murder. Snow is currently serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

There is no physical evidence of any kind that incriminates Snow. His conviction was secured solely on witness testimony. No one saw the crime take place. The prosecution presented eye witnesses who claimed to see Snow leaving the scene and also a series ofjailhouse snitches who claimed that Snow confessed to them that he had committed the crime. New evidence is now available that highlights many inconsistencies in the eye witness statements, and numerous jailhousesnitches have now recanted. There are also documented allegations of deals given to snitches by the State in return for testimony. Read More »
