DA Refuses to Give Possibly Innocent Man Chance to Prove His Case | Philadelphia City Paper | 05/16/2013

See on Scoop.itCorrupt elected officials, unqualified coroner

Eugene Gilyard is serving a life sentence for murder. Now, another man has confessed.

Shirley Sanservino‘s insight:

Philadelphia, like other cities, the DA is paid to convict.  If they can’t get a plea deal they will go for the easiest possible conviction.  They chose who, when and why they prosecute a case and no citizen can challenge that decision. I agree with commenter, carla commenate’s statement – the police and Da must be held accountable. 


In this case and others, eye witnesses are often incorrect.


Local comments:


"the d.a. and the system refuse to admit when they are wrong. these losers would rather let the criminal stay free than let an innocent person go free.  bunch of losers."

"Until the DA’s and the police are held accountable this will continue.  An innocent man whose life is destroyed whose wife and children lose their father/husband and their finacial stabilty mean NOTHING until those who put him there PAY."

  1. Sadly this is not just about Philly. It is an outrage taking place nationwide, in every city, even federal. It is outrageous to know for a fact that there are even 10 innocent ….truly totally innocent …..people sitting in prison just so the prosecutors of the US courts can keep their precious 90% plus conviction rate. But there is not just 10 people…..there are thousands. And each and every one of those innocent sitting in prison has a family, has friends, that are suffering needlessly. Outrageous and disgusting. What will it take to fix this broken system?



    • I have to agree. Since September I have been pleading for Pennsylvania DA to take another look into the cause of death of my son, Raymond Zachry who died from poisoning. This is a case where someone is guilty and protected by the DA, coroner and local police. Go figure. I have been working to establish accountability and oversight. Ray’s case is rank with corruption and no one has the authority to inquire.

      One day it will happen.



      • I have been following your journey and my heart goes out to you. I wish you the very best. Keep on going.



        • Thank you. I continue the research and lobbying for justice for so many who have been denied access to information when a close loved one dies alone and details are kept secret from the family. Such a heart wrenching situation that all too many have to endure.
          God bless you for your continued encouragement.
