Information Withheld in the Trial of Ramsey Muniz

Dear Friends:
The attached letter from Ramsey Muñiz was submitted to Ronald R. Rodgers, Pardon Attorney in an application for a Commutation of Sentence (pardon) addressed to President Barack Obama. The application was mailed on April 2, 2010, which was Good Friday.
Also attached is a letter from Rosa Rosales, President of National LULAC. Ms. Rosales and representatives of other organizations have written to President Obama requesting an immediate Commutation of Sentence for Ramsey Muñiz - a man who made great contributions during the Chicano Civil Rights Movement.
Ramsey Muñiz was denied a fair trial in a 1994 conviction that placed him in prison for life without parole. During the trial, government attorneys maliciously and intentionally withheld information from defense attorney Dick DeGuerin under the Brady rule, until it was too late. The information would have revealed Donacio Medina as the primary conspirator. The judge refused to issue a subpoena of motel records which would have revealed Danny Hernandez as the co-conspirator. (Trial transcript pages 1144 -1147).
Additionally, the DEA allowed Donacio Medina, who had made an illegal transaction with them, to go free so that he would not be present during the trial. (Trial transcript pages 1159 - 1161).
PLEASE READ THE ATTACHED DOCUMENTS which prove that Ramsey Muñiz, now 67 years of age, has been incarcerated for seventeen years for a crime committed by a man that the government allowed to go free. The time to free Ramsey Muñiz is now!
Those who wish to help may forward correspondence to their congressmen, and members of LULAC, MALDEF, the American GI Forum, attorneys, and other organizations whose assistance can free an innocent man. They may write to President Barack Obama in care of Ronald Rodgers, Pardon Attorney at the address below:

Mr. Ronald R. Rodgers
Pardon Attorney
1425 New York Avenue, N.W.
Suite 11000
Washington, D.C. 20530
