Started in 2014, the Innocence Rights of Orange County began with one client, Juan Rayford. Dupree Glass was prosecuted in the same case as Juan Rayford. They were sentenced to eleven consecutive life sentences for allegedly shooting at a house where eleven people lived. No one was seriously injured, and both have maintained their innocence since day one. Nevertheless, they were prosecuted under the Kill Zone Theory. This theory eliminates the need for the prosecutor to prove the element of specific intent when charging attempted murder as long as the individuals are standing within a "kill zone". The "kill zone" is an ambiguous area defined by the prosecutor which results in excessive attempted murder charges. Juan and Dupree's petitions for review was granted by the California Supreme Court in December of 2016, and we are currently waiting for the Court to hear this case.
In March 2017, we filed a writ of habeas corpus on the same grounds as Juan's case.
