Dusty's Story
Media Stories



A petition is now also online at Change.org!

If the Writ of Acutual Innocence is denied by the Upper Courts, then we will have to once again rely on filing to the Governor for a Clemency. Under Virginia law, Dusty can be released from prison by receiving a pardon from the governor. If that time should come, we want to collect as many signatures as possible to help influence Governor Terry McAuliffe to grant that pardon.  So please submit the following petition to help us effect Dusty's release.  Once you have submitted the petition, click the Back button to return to this page.

Or, if you prefer you can contact the governor directly:

Dear Governor McAuliffe :

I encourage you to pardon Dustin A. Turner.  Dustin did not commit the crime for which he is serving 82 years in prison.  Billy Joe Brown has been convicted of that crime and has since confessed.  Dustin has been unjustly imprisoned. We request that you grant clemency to Dustin Turner immediately.
