Terry’s Story in Brief—And How YOU Can Help Today

Several years ago, Terry Trussell was selected for jury duty in Dixie County. Now this is the "civil" grand jury created by lawyers in the mid-forties not to be confused with the Common Law Grand Jury mentioned in the US Constitution. An outgoing personality made him the logical choice for jury foreman. A task he took seriously. When it appeared that the state attorney interfered with the "civil" grand jury, Terry disbanded the "civil" grand jury and impaneled a Common Law Grand Jury which made two True Bill Presentments. The first of which was for Obstruction of Justice and Jury Tampering filed against the state attorney.

What happens next can best be described by someone who was in the courtroom with Terry:

When Terry appears in court, he's arrested for not being in court. WHAT?

Where are we today? Terry has been imprisoned for five years and is still in prison now. But several things have changed. We have a new governor and cabinet. These new people in Tallahassee were not mentioned in the second presentment. So now it's time to try and get Terry Trussel released. Let's appeal to Governor DeSantis for a pardon for Terry Trussel. Below is a PDF letter, already written out, waiting for your signature, envelop and stamp. Click on the PDF. When it opens, print it off, sign and mail it to:

Governor DeSantis
The Capitol - State of Florida
400 S. Monroe St.
Tallahassee, FL 32399-0001
