New forensic discoveries thoroughly discredit Kelly Moffett’s accusation, and freshly uncovered evidence may exonerate Byron completely. But only with the work of hired experts and legal professionals can we make these facts known in such a way that will return Byron’s freedom. Your financial support is greatly appreciated.

Secure donations to the Free Byron Case campaign (FBC) can be made using PayPal.

Your financial support is more crucial now than ever, since Investigating Innocence cannot cover every possible fee it encounters (as hiring outside consultants would involve, for example). Attorney fees are also substantial. By giving to FBC you help us provide Byron not only with urgently needed legal assistance but also with hope that he has a future beyond those prison walls.

Make a donation of $25 or greater and receive your choice of an FBC T-shirt, a copy of Byron’s collection of essays and poems, or the 2010 book about the case, written by J. Bennett Allen, as our thanks.


It's easy to send a friend a link to, thereby helping us spread word of Byron's wrongful conviction, but you can also follow us on Twitter and join us on Facebook.



Make yourself an expert. Order a copy of J. Bennett Allen's provocative book, The Skeptical Juror and the Trial of Byron Case, from Amazon today. After reading this engrossing work, you will never think of the criminal justice system in the same way again.
