Amidst tragedy of Hurricane Irma, Death Row Prisoner in Florida Declares Hunger Strike To Protest His Innocence

September 15, 2017
In an unprecedented move, Florida death row inmate Michael Lambrix has declared a "hunger strike" to protest his scheduled execution (October 5, 2017)
Michael Lambrix has consistently maintained his innocence in a case that remains essentially a highly circumstantial case (no eye witnesses, no physical or forensic evidence, no confession). Despite the case receiving international attention, his appeals for justice  in courts have been defeated for over 30 years.
The State funded agency CCRC South recently filed a strong and comprehensive "habeas petition" in the Florida Supreme Court specifically arguing that he must be allowed to present and be heard upon the wealth of evidence, including DNA testing (see  Lambrix v Jones, Case No SC17-1608)
Support in the US and around the world, as well as attorney Adam Tebrugge strongly believe that should Michael Lambrix lose his appeal again, he should then get a unique clemency hearing.
Mike Lambrix has said:
I have been forced into a non-win situation in which the vast resources of the State of Florida
are being employed to put me to death for a crime I am actually innocent of. I cannot stop anyone from executing me. But I am constitutionally entitled to protest against this injustice by declaring and maintaining a hunger strike as an expression of the free speech without governmental intrusion.

Write/email the Governor:


His last clemency hearing was over 30 years ago.
He never has had an opportunity to present his version of events as an integrated whole.
Should he be tried today, he would NOT be sentenced to death (the jury was not unanimous)..
He twice refused offers of a plea-bargain, even though had he done so he would  since have been free.
Mike Lambrix has educated himself in prison and managed to make his experience valuable to others: He will be next year part of a major exhibition at the Nobel Peace Center in Norway, ("Noble is Man") and his writings, his advice to others on how to pursue legitimate successful lives are already part of a wider growing effort to educate and encourage the public, which needs to be supported.
