Petition to Free Lonnie Ray Allen LaBonte

TO: The United States District Court for The Southern District of Texas, The 410th District Court of Montgomery County, Texas, Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, The Honourable Governor of Texas, and Everyone interested in truth, justice, and righting a judical wrong,


Lonnie LaBonte, born January 14, 1977, is a soft spoken, gentle, pleasant, well mannered young man, gainfully full time employed and considered to be a hard working individual...that is until being raped by a failed judicial system, wrongly convicted of capital murder and sentenced to spend life imprisoned without the possibility of parole and made to become a victim for crimes which he did not and is not capable of having committed, crimes which happened miles from where he was at the time, crimes which are physically, logistically, and humanly impossible for him to have committed.

Rather than justice having been performed on behalf of the victims, Morgan and Cleary, a grave injustice has been done to Lonnie LaBonte, his wife, child, family and friends....all of which have been made to become victims by a failed judicial system while allowing the true perpetrator and criminal that committed these acts to remain without prosecution and conviction.

After a jury trial lasting about 3 days, with no witnesses testifying on his behalf, false testimony given by some of the State witnesses, no DNA evidence, no telephone records, no physical evidence, one co-defendant became a State eye witness after being held just over 20 months declaring innocence and no knowledge, no involvement in said crimes in Montgomery County jail, decided just a few days before the trial of Lonnie, to accept a deal offered by Montgomery County Texas District Attorney.

In a Deposition given willingly in 2004, the State of Texas "eye witness" admitted that a deal offered by the District Attorney was a kind of wink-wink deal, was made in exchange for testimony against Lonnie. At Lonnie's trial this person testified among other things, that Lonnie committed acts resulting in the death of one or both girls, in concert with or aided by a third co-defendant, while remaining within the pickup truck watching.

Lonnie was convicted September, 2000 receiving a sentence of life without parole.

All charges were dropped against the State eye witness, being released in November, 2000 with prosecutors stating lack of evidence to prosecute as reason for dismissal.

February, 2004 Said State witness willingly gave a Deposition which states in part that a story had been given, which was later adapted to be their own, that the Montgomery County Texas District Attorney had a "wink-wink" type of deal and went on to explain the details of it. This witness admitted that they and Lonnie were together the evening and morning in question, that Lonnie did not ever commit, nor take part in any criminally charged activity, and did not ever go to the location known as the crime scene.

There is additional new evidence discovered since his conviction to support his innocence which cannot be added to this petition but is incorporated in as a part of the Petitioner's Habeas Corpus Motion Pursuant to Rule 11.07 ET. SEQ. of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, Memorandum of Law in Support of Petitioner's Habeas Corpus Motion Pursuant to Rule 11.07 ET. SEQ. of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure to be filed with the 410th District Court Montgomery County, Texas; Petitioner's Motion for Relief Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2254, Memorandum of Law in Support of Petitioner's Motion For Relief Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2254 to be filed with the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas. Said Motions and Memorandums will be filed on or about October 5, 2004.

Along with our geniune sympathy for the family and friends of the victims, we the undersigned are also extremely concerned that a terrible injustice has been done to Lonnie LaBonte, TDCJ #1003685. We strongly believe in his innocence and pray that in the interest of truth and justice the State of Texas will vacate the conviction and subsequent sentence, or at a minimum grant an evidentiary hearing.

In the absence of relief sought being granted, that of vacating of conviction and sentence or an evidentiary hearing, we plead for a full and unconditional pardon be granted Lonnie Ray Allen LaBonte post haste.
