3. Support PA House Bill 2135

Supporters of Zeke’s case should take notice of PA HB 2135, which was introduced on June 7, 2016 by Representatives Dawkins, Acosta, and Brown.

Pennsylvania is ONLY one of six states that does NOT offer parole to prisoners with life sentences. Furthermore, it has made commutations all but impossible to obtain.
 
Apart from issues of justice and fairness, if granted parole, many lifers, especially older ones, would relieve the State of heavy financial burdens due to high medical costs associated with advanced age. House Bill 2135 would ELIMINATE life sentences without possibility of parole.
Unfortunately, without strong and sustained support from a broad spectrum of Pennsylvania citizens, HB 2135 has little chance of being voted on or enacted. In addition, implementation of its recommendations faces a series of stiff legal challenges.
Still, it is a hopeful first step.
Pennsylvania citizens can support by writing or contacting their state legislators (both House and Senate) and urge them to support HB 2135.

It has been more than 20 years since Ken Rice filed this in-depth report on Zeke’s case. 20 years since Zeke’s judge and prosecutor both labeled his trial “A Miscarriage of Justice.”

And 20 years later, Zeke is still in prison, serving a life sentence for a crime he did not commit.
