Earlier this week, I had the privilege of meeting with an exceptional man. Juan Roberto Melendez-Colon spent over 17 years on death row after being wrongly convicted of murder. Juan was close to the end of his appeals when a defense lawyer
discovered the taped confession of the actual killer. Juan was then exonerated. Today, he tours the United States to tell his story in hopes of ending the death penalty. The bill to end the death penalty in Colorado is being introduced in a few weeks and I am honored to be one of the sponsors.
