Welcome to the Friends of Michael Goodwin website. We are dedicated to the exoneration and release of Michael F. Goodwin, the apprehension and conviction of the true perpetrators of the Mickey and Trudy Thompson murders, and the improvement of true justice, fairness and efficiency in our legal system.
We lost the
first of 9 legal opportunities to have the conviction reviewed and reversed.
There are 95%
of the pieces of evidence proving I’m not guilty that were not introduced in
the trial. And because of that, they could not be appealed at the direct
appeal. The L.A.D.A hid over 500 pieces of evidence, 283 Brady violations, and
311 witness statements that we haven’t seen yet.
receive the missing evidence, we will file a Habeas Corpus petition, that allows
one to introduce all of the new evidence that was not introuced at trial.
We have not
had a fair hearing ― and have “Just Begun to Fight.”
