On December 3, 1996, at 4:10 pm, Judge Michael Lyon of the District Court of Weber County, State of Utah, sent a man to prison for a crime committed and confessed to by another man. Prior to imposing the final sentence, Judge Lyon made the following remarks: "I don't know that there is a more difficult case where a judge does more soul searching in a case where a person staunchly denies culpability and at every turn in the system pleads his innocence. We know that there are cases where people are punished for crimes they didn't do. It would just be utterly repugnant for me to think that I could send a man to prison for a crime that he did not commit? I only wish I could look inside your heart. I can't? And the only thing I can do today is do what I think is the right thing to do. And I don't know what's right?, and so I'm just doing the best that I can." His best sent an innocent man to prison for five years, placed him on a state sex offender registry for ten years, and was a life sentence of hatred and abuse because of a fabricated label and conviction. Innocence Beyond the Glass House?A Story of Injustice and the Final Battle for Freedom is the beginning and ending of the story. It's the truth about how one innocent man suffered then lived to tell the tale. It's a book about rebirth and trying to find peace and discovery that came at great cost. It's a look at the criminal justice system at its worst and shows how Lady Justice is not only blind but habitually deaf and dumb. This work is about survival, self-reflection, the indomitable human soul, and about love then hate, friends then enemies, acceptance followed by complete rejection from every segment of humanity, while exhibiting unparalleled endurance and hope and confidence in divine beings, which gave the author the capacity to abide lifelong suffering.
