Herman Wallace Re-indicted Before Dying

Katherine Conner is a Katrina victim who was swindled by a unlicensed contractor from Mississippi with whom she contracted for home repairs. She cancelled a check she wrote to the contractor that was $3,500 more than the contract amount for home repairs that are still not finished. She expected the contractor to give her a correct bill. Instead of receiving justice, Katherine was indicted for theft of services and required to pay 70% of her income each month in probation fees and restitution. Over the course of time, Katherine got behind in her court-ordered payments and was told that she had until June 2013 to either pay $3,000 in overdue fees or face three years of hard labor in prison. Katherine received some donations toward her probation and borrowed the rest. Now she struggles to pay her monthly probation and restitution fees PLUS repay her loan. Katherine complained about her civil matter with the contractor being treated like a criminal matter, and she feels her teenage son was targeted for wrongful prosecution as a result.

Life is extremely challenging for Katherine Conner and her son, Matthew Moore. Meanwhile, their prosecutor continues to wreck havoc on the lives of black people in Louisiana. District Attorney Sam D’Aquilla had Herman Wallace re-indicted for murder a few days after he was released from 41 years of solitary confinement in Angola Prison. Wallace, one of the Angola 3, probably died immediately upon hearing the news in hospice care that he was due back in court in December 2013.

“I say he is a murderer, and he is not innocent,” District Attorney Sam D’Aquilla said. “The conviction was overturned because the federal judge perceived a flaw in the indictment — not his murder conviction.”

D’Aquilla said Wallace's attorney Nicholas J. Trenticosta, of New Orleans, was wrong when he said Tuesday that Wallace is “a free man, and he’s innocent.”

I was told that when people try to comment at this article, they encounter codes and are not allowed to comment. That is the state of "free speech" and "freedom of press" that I also found in the USA. That is why I put my phone number in the top margin of my blogs and give my email address. If I do not respond to your emails and messages within 24 hours, assume they were not received, and please try again. I am America's most censored person. Blessings!

Samuel D'Aquilla is up for re-election. He is the Louisiana prosecutor who brought a new conviction against former Black Panther Party member Herman Wallace while Wallace was on his deathbed. Wallace was released from prison where he spent 43years in solitary confinement as part of the Angola 3, but he lived only three days as a "free" man. Someone uses D'Aquilla's former website to question his integrity. The website welcomes public comments.
