The former death house chaplain at the time of execution says he's convinced DeLuna was an innocent man. Are you willing to go that far?

I'll put it this way: I'm absolutely convinced that no juror could find DeLuna guilty beyond a reasonable doubt based on the evidence that truly exists in this case. And I have no doubt that jurors would reasonably find that Carlos Hernandez was guilty of this crime beyond a reasonable doubt. Our view is that this is a case of an innocent man having been executed for a crime somebody else committed. But we want the public to go and look at our website — at thewrongcarlos.net — and to make up their own minds. We lay it all out here. Every bit of evidence we have is there and we want people to decide for themselves, not to be told what the evidence says to take someone else's word.  We think that people will realize what we realized and come close to the conclusion that we reached.
