The statement below was drafted by Jarvis Masters’ legal team several days ago. While the news is more disappointing than I had hoped for, I think there are some encouraging aspects of Judge Duryee’s findings, and the lawyers will pursue these openings wholeheartedly. Jarvis has endured many years of unjust conviction and incarceration, so it is hard to counsel patience. But this is our practice, in confidence that his legal team will not give up the goal of finding freedom.

“On April 11, 2011, Judge Lynn Duryee filed her fact-finding report with the California Supreme Court. There are some facts very much in Jarvis’s favor, and some that are not. The next steps will be with the California Supreme Court and there is no telling how long that will take. We will keep you posted on any new developments.”
