The KC Freedom Project With Latahra Smith

The KC Freedom Project is concerned with prosecutirial misconduct, sloppy investigation, withholding evidence or ignoring evidence that does not fit the scenario that will get a conviction. They are about freeing the innocent and fighting a system that can acknowledge innocence of a convicted person and still hold them with legal technicalities, such as arbitrary deadlines.

Craig Lubow talks with Latahra Smith of the KC Freedom Project about what they are doing to free innocent people and how you can help. Check them out at – http://www.kcfreedomproject.org/

KCFP understands how difficult it is for incarcerated persons to represent themselves Pro Se in a court of law. Due to the limited resources in the prison law libraries inmates are most times left without having access to valuable up to date law changes, statues and information causing them to be at an disadvantage as they petition the courts. We serve as an extension to connect the inmate with information and assistance needed in the following areas at no cost to the inmate.
- Obtain court transcripts and police investigative reports.
- Search for inconsistencies within cases.
- Provide video services for the recording of witness interviews and witness recantments.
- Locate witnesses for court ordered appearance.
- Perform extensive background checks on witnesses.
- Travel to the prison for legal visits.
For support and prayer call the KCFP prayer hotline conference line at 712-775-7031 when prompted enter our meeting ID number 338489289#. We are available nightly from 9PM to 10PM.
