Cant believe they talked Fortner into 30 years when the boot prints didnt match. We could have a innocent man in prison due to the fact he has spent his whole life in prison and doesnt know another life. Shouldnt this be appealed and he stand a fair trial?

Does any of ya'll really know him? I use to date him and it is just not the Abrey that I know. He was never vilent with me or my son and and showed no signs of it. Yes he has spent pretty much all of his life in prison but only the ones that have been to prison knows what it does to a man. There is more to him then you will read in articles.

He did it. He's lucking he didn't get the death penalty. There was alot more then just a boot print. He plead to save other people that where also involved.
