RETRIAL HEARING SET FOR APRIL!
Despite scientific evidence showing his innocence, Maine native Dennis Dechaine was convicted of a 1988 murder and is serving a life sentence without parole. Based on results of recent DNA testing, a judge has granted the motion for a hearing to decide if an actual retrial is warranted. The hearing is set for April 18th and 19th at the Knox Country Courthouse in Rockland. Although Dennis’s lawyers, John Nale and Stuart Tisdale, are working for free, we need to pay for expensive expert witnesses. Trial and Error is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to seeking justice for Dennis, and all financial donations are tax-deductible. To help us meet our $50,000 matching challenge grant, please send a check to Trial and Error, P.O. Box 153, Madawaska Maine 04756, or click on the link. Thank you!
