On October 22, 2010, Michiel Oakes was wrongly convicted of premeditated murder.
Michiel pled not guilty by reason of self defense, a claim backed by physical ballistics evidence and an unimpeachable testimony. However, he was eventually found guilty due to the disallowance of critical, corroborating testimony in his defense.
Through this site, we hope to illuminate the wrongs committed against Michiel, and uphold his plight in the face of injustice. If you would like to learn more about this man and his fight for freedom, please continue reading.
