Vern Pierson, the District Attorney of El Dorado county used my case to get elected. Before being elected, he promised my mother he would look into my case and “do something about it”. He never did anything about it. But his empty promise secured the votes. Fast forward to today. My wife sees an article about Vern Pierson having a hand in freeing this man. While we are happy for this Ricky, whom I knew in county jail, what about the promise Pierson made to me? Ricky I remember you and you are the only other person I have met who was also wrongfully convicted. I’m happy for you but please remember the innocent men and women still behind bars.

About Sean & Emelia

Sean O'Brien was wrongfully convicted in El Dorado County, California and sentenced in adult court to Life Without Parole at the age of 16 without a shred of physical evidence tying him to the crime for which he was convicted. Sean and I have been friends since grade school and we were married in 2017. We live and grow together in love with the knowledge of his innocence, our faith, and hope for our future. We embrace this journey, wherever it may take us, cherishing each moment we have together and staying true to our hearts. This blog is about the past we share, our life together and our fight for jusice. Thank you for reading. God bless.
