Great story Ron.  On the face of it, it seems like a tragedy, and I hope the truth comes out.  I'm really glad he uses his artistic talents, and hope he gets to see a real course before he dies.

Little story - I was an alternate on a jury - charge was dealing drugs and assorted other felonies.  I had holes all over the prosecution's case - the police work was shoddy and the evidence didn't add up.  I hated the fact that as an alternate I couldn't say anything, and I was excused after final arguments.  My peers found the defendant guilty, but I'm telling you, I would've championed his case big time in deliberations. 

That said, I love his artwork and wish him the best.

Dixon was released from prison, conviction vacated. Story at: http://awfulannouncing.com/golf/valentino-dixon-murder-conviction-27-years-jail-golf-digest.html



The story by Golf Digest brought his case forward to the point an innocence project took up the case.

It's pretty amazing to think that if he had picked a different hobby to occupy his time with in prison, he'd still be there.

I've been trying to buy a print on his site but there are technical difficulties with getting payment to go through with the paypal/credit card option. Has anyone else had luck?
