Welcome!

My name is Will Duchon. I live in Stratford, CT. This is the story of The Opus 30 Mission.


MR. SHANE WATSON

In 2003 I encountered Mr. Shane Watson, who is currently serving a 25 year to life sentence for second-degree murder. After careful review of the case transcripts, police reports, trial transcripts and other documentation, it became clear to me that Shane is not guilty of this crime. His case is an example of flawed "eyewitness" testimony, an incredibly flimsy prosecution, and essentially a travesty of justice. Shane is 50 years old, and has been in prison since 1993.

I followed up my suspicions about the case with Dr. Jennifer Dysart, currently a professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in NYC. Her SUMMARY confirmed my suspicions.


Along with some dedicated friends from Pleasantville Presbyterian Church in Pleasantville, NY, Monroe Congregational Church in Monroe, CT, the fine attorney Robert Boyle of New York City, and our dedicated investigator Doug Walters of Chicago, I am seeking to have Shane's conviction overturned so that ultimately, he will be free to enjoy his life.

For details of the Shane Watson case, please read the SUMMARY by our investigator, Doug Walters.


MR. ROBERT K. MOORE

In April of 2016 I learned of the case of Mr. Robert K. Moore. I was invited to speak to a men's group about Shane Watson's case at Westchester Jewish Community Services in Yonkers, NY. The group is led by Mr. Mark Levine, LCSW. A week or so following the meeting, Mr. Levine emailed me about Mr. Robert Moore, who is currently incarcerated at Upstate Correctional Facility in Malone, NY.







This blog is simply a way to share Shane's and Robert's story as well as new and current information regarding their cases. I encourage you to read the posts that describe the details of his case. It is also an opportunity to learn about how flawed the criminal justice system is.

THE MOTION HAS BEEN FILED IN COURT!

Today our attorney Robert Boyle sent this message to me in an email:

Hi Will,
I am happy to report that the motion to vacate Shane's conviction was filed in court
today July 30.  Mercedes appeared at my office two weeks ago and executed an
affidavit; then I saw Shane last week.  So all is well.

There is a court date August 14; nothing will happen that day except some
scheduling.  Shane will not be in court.  You are free to come but needn't on that day.



This is a major step forward. We now need to raise the remaining $6500 in legal fees. Please consider a donation, which can be easily made via our blog.
