Reason TV- Part 2 Kenneth Clair
When Prosecutors Withhold Information,
Innocent People Go To Prison—or Worse....
Reason TV- Part 3
What Does It Take To Get A Retrial?
Kenneth Clair speaks out in a live "Jail Interview" in Orange County Theo Lacy Jail. This interview was an exclusive "Reason TV" production.  
Exonerate Kenneth Clair: DNA Evidence Points to Someone Else.
On November 15, 1984, 5-year-old Jerrod Hessling witnessed the beating, rape, and stabbing death of his babysitter. When asked to describe the killer, he said, without hesitation, that it was a white male. Another child present during the murder saw a white man’s tattooed arm reach inside the house to open a sliding glass door.
Yet somehow, the lawyers in the case determined that Kenneth Clair, a dark-skinned African-American homeless man who had been squatting next door, was the killer. When Jerrod saw him on the witness stand and insisted they had the wrong man, the prosecution chalked it up to youth and trauma and pursued the death penalty for Kenneth Clair.

But that’s not the biggest bombshell in this case -- in 2008, forensic testing revealed that DNA found on the murder victim did not match Clair’s. DNA taken from a glove found at the scene also did not match. It matches another individual, but the Orange County District Attorney insists that “confidentiality is required” concerning this evidence, and for 7 years now, the identity of the person whose DNA does match the swab has remained a secret. The prosecution withheld exculputory evidence, produced a witness to place Clair at the "crime scene" by extorting her. It was imposible for the prosecution's star witness to have been at the crime scene, due to the fact that she was still in rehab after brain surgery.

Let us do a "Full Investigation" into your Wrongful Conviction.... We can solve your Open Case or Closed Case that the police department no longer has interest in......

Have you, a family member, or a friend been wrongfully convicted of a crime and sent to prison? We here at C. J. Ford Private Investigations can help you. Remember, attorneys litigate cases, THEY DO NOT SOLVE OR INVESTIGATE CASES... We can fully investigate your case, come up with new evidence, find an interview people that should have been part of your trial. Don't waste your money hiring an attorney before you have your case fully investigated.

Our investigation services start from $3500 per case depending on the difficulty. It is a lot better than paying an attorney $10,000 to $50,000 or more just to find out that you have wasted your money on useless litigation, especially in appellate matters. The only way to overturn a wrongful conviction is through investigation and coming up with newly discovered evidence. You might also be able to prove that the prosecutor withheld exculpatory evidence that could have led to your freedom. We look into all "ineffective assistance" of counsel cases. So if you would like to actually prevail, take care of the investigative portion of your case first. Don't jump the gun and go out and hire an attorney! Get the evidence first! The attorney will not get evidence for you...., and in some cases will not pursue another attorney because of the oath attorneys have with each other. LOOK INTO INVESTIGATION FIRST AND MAYBE EVEN HAVING YOUR CASE SOLVED....

If you are trying to pursue a case, and the police department decides that they are going to sit on their hands, you need to have your case investigated privately. The police department sits on tons of open cases that they never get around to solving or investigating. You need an investigation firm that will fully investigate your case, giving it the top priority. Your case is very important and it should be put in the hands of someone who will investigate your case, and not put you on the back burner.  If you are in a situation where the police department will not investigate your case at all, then we are the ones to come to to open up an investigation. If you find that the police department has closed your case, and will no longer work on it, You need to come to us. Just because the police department has decided not to pursue your case, doesn't mean that your case is less valid or important.
