Last Statement Of Gregory Wright # 999253 Killed By The Sate Of Texas October 30, 2008

"Yes I do. There has been a lot of confusion on who done this. I know you all want closure. Donna had her Christianity in tact when she died. She never went to a drug house. John Adams lied. He went to the police and told them a story. He made deals and sold stuff to keep from going to prison. I left the house, and I left him there. My only act or involvement was not telling on him. John Adams is the one that killed Donna Vick. I took a polygraph and passed. John Adams never volunteered to take one. I have done everything in my power. Donna Vick helped me; she took me off the street. I was a truck driver; my CDL was still active. Donna gave me everything I could ask for. I helped her around the yard. I helped her around the house. She asked if there were anyone else to help. I am a Christian myself, so I told her about John Adam. We picked him up at a dope house. I did not know he was a career criminal. When we got to the house he was jonesin for drugs. He has to go to Dallas. I was in the bathroom when he attacked. I am deaf in one ear and I thought the T.V. was up too loud. I ran in to the bedroom. By the time I came in, when I tried to help her, with first aid, it was too late. The veins were cut on her throat. He stabbed her in her heart, and that's what killed her. I told John Adams, "turn yourself in or hit the high road." I owed him a favor because he pulled someone off my back. I was in a fight downtown. Two or three days later he turned on me. I have done everything to prove my innocence. Before you is an innocent man. I love my famly. I'll be waiting on ya'll. I'm finished talking."

I have to run a lot of people's records at work. It's always amazing to me to see 11, 12, 13 convictions, and they plead guilty to all of them. When I ask about them, they say that the appointed attorney told them they'd go to jail for a lot longer if they plead not guilty and then got convicted.

Granted, when you're talking about theft or trespass, they probably did most of the crimes. But for the most part, we're talking about people so limited in their mental capacity that I'm not convinced they knew what was going on when they plead guilty.

Even with a lawyer, people who are limited mentally can really get rolled right over... I don't know what you do about that...
