Devin Lee Brown #471237 GBCI; PO Box 19033 Green Bay, Wi 54307-9033

It's transparent how draconian my situation is and I'm past the sympathetic stage. I'm seeking cohesiveness from the outside world because all of my previous efforts are stagnated. IN addition, more attention needs to be brought in cases similar to mines to eradicate this or the injustice will continue to occur; next it might be someone you love.
To elucidate, I'm desirously the aid of prominent figures, prestigious firms, intelligentsia, people with resources, someone with a platform to voice my sentiments, people with media outlets, computer literates, fact finders, motivators and hungry lawyers who want to make a name for themselves, to help me obtain my freedom.
The (in)justice system is trying to coerce me psychologically pertaining to my situation as credence with a contingent ending. I'm in such an abject state my faith with them is vacillating. If you saw things from my angle you would look upon our (in)justice system with outage. However, in assisting me I don't fall under the statistical numbers of the recidivist. My situation is not like those misleading numbers. I have a few people who still believe in my capabilities. Don't let the stigma of public opinion deter you from aiding me because my incarceration doesn't reflect who I am as a man. Contact me!
Title “Mistaken Identity”
Devin Brown gets 35 years to life for mistaken identity.
Could you or someone you love be the next victim of Mistaken identity?
Eye witness says to police that “someone “ just walked past and started shooting and she didn’t recognize him, but after being told by someone else Brown could be involved she thinks she knows Brown from going to his house. However , when picking him out of a photo array says only time she ever saw him was on night of the shooting. Then at trial she points to different person and says she knows me from a party.
I was illegally arrested on August 03 and lost trial Oct 04. I felt compelled to sign a statement after I was confronted by a signed statement by my big brother implicating me as the one that killed someone. After I denied it several times through several intense interrogations and being denied a lawyer, it overwhelmed me and became too much for me to bear for someone never in a situation like that ever before. My brother’s statement wasn’t used at my trial , however , they used my statement and a faulty eye witness who gave several different contradictory statements and pointed to someone else during my trial in a photo lineup.
In July of 04 an-out -of -court statement from a former friend of mine said I told him I shot the victim (so he could get released only later to catch another case in involving a toddler being killed) however at trial he plead the 5th and refused to take an oath to verify his statements but was compelled to testify, but I still couldn’t questions him because every question was “I don’t know,” “I don’t recall” or “I don’t remember”. A jury used no physical evidence to convict me.
Now I am in the court of appeals again because the courts keep giving me the run around hitting me with technical errors because I am pro se. My appeal process is similar to the Emmanuel Page VS Matthew Frank case 43 F:3c 901 WI 2003, where they are not ruling on my issues. The circuit court sends me to the appeals court saying it’s their issues, then the appeals courts says it’s the state, then the state sends me back. The whole time the appeals court didn’t rule on my claims. This is where my problem is.
I believe I have grounds for a successful appeal for those reasons also, my trial court judge is on record saying he sees a discrepancy with the detective’s version of events on how they entered my mother’s house. This was one of the most important motions I had but they chose to side with the police against my witness (my mother/ Niece) on a reason that doesn’t have anything to do with how the police gained entry into the house without an arrest warrant after ample time . I’m the victim of mistaken identity and over bearing police , misconduct, taking advantage of people who haven’t been I this type of situation and the judges are holding me to a higher standard than the people who take an oath to serve and protect. If you could help me in any way, it would be greatly appreciated. If not, please direct me to someone who can.
