Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Florida CFO Jeff Atwater, Florida Commissioner Adam Putnam, Flo

Office of Cabinet Affairs

The Capitol

Tallahassee, FL 32399

Dear [Attorney General Pam Bondi] [CFO Jeff Atwater] [Commissioner Adam Putnam]

I am writing to ask you to recommend to Governor Rick Scott that Felix Garcia be granted Clemency. New evidence has made it clear that Mr. Garcia, a deaf man framed for murder, has been unjustly held in prison for more than three decades. Felix s story of unjust imprisonment by Florida authorities has been put into the national spotlight by James Ridgeway, one of America s premier investigative journalists, in an article for Mother Jones. It is time for you to act on this new evidence.

In 2006, Frank Garcia, Felix's brother, finally confessed in court that Felix had nothing to do with the murder and armed robbery of Joseph Tramontana in Hillsborough County on August 3rd, 1981. Frank s 2006 testimony stated outright that the crimes had been committed by himself and Ray Stanley alone, and that Felix "had nothing to do with it." During the 1981 trial, Frank, his sister Tina, and Tina s boyfriend (Ray Stanley) conspired to lie under oath that Felix killed Tramontana. The three of them planned the crime together and then took advantage of Felix's deafness to pin the crime on him.

There is overwhelming reason to believe that Felix Garcia, who entered jail in 1981 at the age of 19, is innocent. Frank s fingerprints were found at the scene of the crime, while eyewitness testimony puts Felix five miles away, watching a movie and eating pizza at his girlfriend's house. Physical evidence proves this: Felix signed a receipt for a pizza that was delivered to his girlfriend's house at the time of the crime. Furthermore, Felix's girlfriend and her mother testified in court that Felix was with them that night.

Page 1

Nonetheless, during the 2006 review of Felix s case, a judge denied freedom for Felix, stating that he "couldn't discern the truth." His confusion rested on the one piece of physical evidence linking Felix to the crime, a pawn ticket (for Tramontana s pinky ring) which Frank asked Felix to sign because Frank told his brother that he "forgot his ID." Frank s 2006 testimony, however, makes it clear that the pawn ticket is irrelevant.

In your consideration of whether to recommend clemency for Felix after 32 years of unjust imprisonment, please consider that at the 1981 trial, Felix was not given the proper accommodations due a deaf person. As a result, Felix understood very little of what was said. Worse, in the 30 years since then, Felix has suffered the physical and mental abuse common among deaf inmates: rape, isolation, and neglect.

Please recommend that Felix Garcia be granted clemency. Please do not thwart justice by keeping an innocent man in prison any longer. Let Felix have his life back.

Sincerely,

Name

Frankly, this case looks trumped up and it makes Florida look bad, sloppy, and like it would rather persecute than be fair. Pardoning Mr. Garcia would be the best way to right what is clearly a wrong - and it would make the executive branch and attorney general's office look competent. Consider it, please.

a time limit can be put in place to prevent regular citizens wronged by those officials who abuses their position, however, there is no time limit for crimes. The government have all the time in the world to catch a criminal, and a criminal have no time redress a violation of the Supreme Law our Constitution, due to statute of limitations by our legislature. The law is not injust, only those who wield it's authority through their bias and prejudices.

Felix was set up by his brother and sister. They thought he'd get less punishment because he was deaf. Now he's treated twice as bad, and punished not only for a crime he did not commit, but for being deaf in prison. Please, set him free!

This innocent man should not have to spend the rest of his life in prison because his disability kept him from understanding and meeting appeal deadlines!
