A LETTER FROM DEATH ROW (2006)

"Even though this new evidence may establish Mr. Richey's innocence, the Ohio and United States Constitutions nonetheless allow him to be executed because the prosecution did not know that the scientific testimony offered at trial was false and unreliable." - Prosecutor Dan Gershutz

“I am sure that most of the world's leading forensic scientists in this field would be horrified if they saw the chromatograms used to convict Kenny Richey. If Kenny Richey were executed on the basis of this scientific evidence, then these chromatograms will become historical documents, examined by scientists all over the world to show just how wrong forensic evidence can be.” - Tony Cafe, Arson Expert

The Attic Studio in association with MOJO Scotland staged a reading of Johnny Brown's radio play "A Letter From Death Row" on Wednesday the 25th January 2006 at 7:30pm in Filmbase, Curved Street, Temple Bar to help raise awareness of the case of Kenny Richey, an innocent Scot on death row in the state of Ohio in the USA.

The reading was introduced by Irvine Welsh, a passionate supporter of Kenny's cause and was attended by a large gathering of Attic Studio members. Gary Lewis of Billy Elliott fame read Kenny Richey and Patrick Joseph Byrnes read the prosecutor who made his career on the back of this incredible miscarriage of justice.

Since the reading Kenny Richey has been acquitted and released from prison.
