1991, Frankie Porter was involved in a series of restaurant robberies.
He along with several other companions were charged with armed
robbery and kidnapping. Dubbed by the media as the "Cooler-Bandits
they were convicted and sentenced to centuries in prison. No none
was injured in any of their crimes. Frankie was sentenced, at age
19, to 228-528
years in prison. At
the time of his sentencing, Ohio had not established any sentencing
guidelines. It is our hope and prayer that this web-endeavor will
not only help to "free" Frankie but will bring awareness,
enlighten and educate our society to rectify unjust prison sentencing.
