Mark Turner is a man in Gulf Breeze, Florida near Pensacola who has been convicted of money laundering, grand theft and racketeering. His Appeal case has been denied, and on that news he attempted suicide. That is the short story of this terrible case of what seems to be a mammoth injustice. There are links to all the documentation of Mark Turner's case at the bottom of this article.
The following is the Appeal rebuttal submitted to the Florida Court of Appeal by Turner's court-appointed attorney. These documents are not easy to read, but I want those interested in Mark's case to see exactly how the attorney argued on his behalf. I have some text in bold and some in red, of points that make it understandable that something is very wrong, and justice was not granted to Mark Turner.
If you are an attorney or paralegal and can help Mark's wife Nancy prepare for a "Post Conviction Appeal," please leave a comment anywhere on my blog or at Mark's website.
Read the story of Mark's suicide attempt and see two videos he made leading up to the suicide on my latest Mark Turner Update August 2010. Mark makes clear in the videos why he was planning suicide - for reasons we do not usually consider when we hear of a mother or father leaving their family behind.
