State of Louisiana
United States of America

Just turned 18 year old beloved athlete with no previous criminal background, was charged with robbing local Subway where he was an employee. The girl behind counter said that it seemed like the person that robbed the store knew their way around the store. She was asked to go into the walk-in freezer that had no lock on it and was told not to come out until the robbery was done. There was no evidence supporting that Elliott was the one that committed the crime. However, due to poor representation, after 7 months of arrest at a local jail, his lawyer told him to plead guilty and hope for a light sentence.

To make an example out of him, he was sentenced to a 30 year sentence without parole for armed burglary and 21 years for kidnapping at Angola State Penitentiary. He has served 10 years as of March 12th 2007.

We, the undersigned, call on the State of Louisiana for a retrial and to help us bring Elliott White home.
