Stephen Pina has been imprisoned for 27 years, wrongly convicted in Massachusetts based on unreliable witness testimony, prosecutorial misconduct, and DNA excludes him.

The Commonwealth sentenced Mr. Martinez to life imprisonment for the murder of Timothy Walker despite the absence of DNA confirmation, forensics, eyewitnesses, or physical evidence directly connecting him to the crime. New analysis of the surveillance video from the scene of the crime and testimony by an informant which identified the shooter, makes the Commonwealth’s case against Mr. Martinez problematic. Mr. Martinez’s Judicial Gatekeeper petition containing information justifying a new trial, has been denied twice.
Prior to his arraignment in 2011 and eventual conviction in April 2013, Mr. Martinez was a college student with no interaction with the law. He has maintained his innocence for close to 10 years and throughout his imprisonment at MCI-Norfolk.
of wrongful incarceration
Our client, Raymond Gaines is set to regain freedom after 46 years of wrongful incarceration.
In her landmark decision to ALLOW Stay of Execution of Sentence, Justice of the Superior Court reasoned that “Gaines has raised credible issues in connection with the testimony of all three (witnesses)” at his trial, and concluded “the interest of justice is not served by the continued imprisonment of a defendant who may be entitled to a new trial.”
