My name is John Spirko, I have been in prison since 1982. I spent 27 years on death row, I had 7 execution dates back to back, I came within hours of being executed in 2008. I was granted a reprieve so DNA tests could be done. Over 200 DNA tests were done and the result was that none of the DNA on the evidence was mine. The Governor commuted my sentence to life without parole even after saying he was not sure I committed the crime.
For a more complete update on my case, please go to www.clevelandplaindealer. This newspaper has written hundreds of stories on my case and investigated it. They have been a staunch advocate of mine and the fact that I am completely innocent of this crime.
If you want any more information on my case, please let me know and I will send it.
The Ohio Innocence Project has my case now and we are trying to have DNA tests done on evidence that was never tested, but should have been tested years ago. I expect to be released after that testing is done.
I am looking to find someone who needs company and to write to one another on JPay.com (my email service) or even better to talk on the phone. I will pay for all the calls. I am so tired of being alone and would like some company… We can talk about anything. :-))
I don’t have much time left, so I will say that I love reading and also researching the law & learning new things.
I will respond to all who contact me.
I wish you love and peace!
