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


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.


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.

Thank you for visiting.

Send Shane a Snack...Easily!

It is common knowledge that the prison industry in the US is BIG BUSINESS. Who makes money off of hyper-incarceration? Phone companies, the government (inmates build office furniture which is sold to public and private companies), but most of all, the huge privatized prison companies like Corrections Corporation of America, a mega monster corporation that exploits the inmate population explosion for good old hard cash. God bless America!

One company that you and I can cater to is Union Supply Direct.  This company makes it easy to send an inmate gifts of clothing, food, and other supplies without the hassle of shopping and going to the post office.

Today I received a letter from Shane which included an order form for some items he needs...snacks, mostly and a pair of sneakers. He filled the form out completely and asked that I purchase the items using some of our funds, if possible. Instead of mailing the form in with a check, I was able to go online and place the order immediately. What a world.

Here are some of the items Shane seems to crave:

Keebler Deluxe Chocolate Chip Cookies
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Hawaiian Punch Sugar-Free Fruit Juice (red)
Snickers Bars: Fun Size
Obviously Shane is a health-food addict and stays away from sugar.
If YOU would care to send Shane something, you can shop online at Union Supply Direct. 
All you need is Shane's address and inmate #(93A9384). He is incarcerated at Fishkill Correctional.

Happy shopping!
