Richard Allen Masterson

Richard Masterton was wrongly convicted of the 2001 murder of Darin Honeycutt.

Richard met Honeycutt at a Houston, Texas, bar. The two men went back to Honeycutt’s apartment. Richard is accused of strangling Honeycutt in order to rob him. Richard testified they were having sex, and he did not intend Honeycutt’s death.

The medical examiner was a fraud, and the cause of death was a heart attack and not strangulation. Richard also gave a coerced false confession, and also became severely depressed and suicidal while in jail, which contributed to his wrongful conviction.

Because Richard’s lawyers failed him, the court system will not provide relief to him. His last chance to avoid execution on January 20, 2016 is executive clemency.

  1. It was stated”The medical examiner was a fraud, and the cause of death was a heart attack and not strangulation.” This is where Accountability for wrongful death should be established. This also be made into law, No Government agency have immunity from knowingly putting to death an innocent person in knowing that persons innocence. Bill Clinton being guilty for perjury “I didn’t have any sexual contact with this lady” when in fact he did.
    To keep him from having to face accountability signed exclusive order that no politician having done a crime have immunity from prosecution. This executive order should be over turned. If anyone has any ideas how to get this establish please do. We have too much corruption in our Government and this needs to stop. this would put an end to wrong conviction by the use of paid witnesses or threats to a witness false testimonies.
