Extradite author Jens Soering to Germany for a fair hearing

To be delivered to Governor Terry McAuliffe

Petition Statement

German citizen Jens Soering has been in prison for 27 years for a crime he foolishly confessed to at age 20 to prevent his U.S. girl friend from being convicted of murdering her parents. No DNA or other evidence links him to the crime, and outgoing Virginia Governor Kaine had agreed to return him to Germany in 2009, but incoming Governor McDonnell, in an unprecedented move, rescinded Kaine's action.
There are currently 266 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300 signatures!

Petition Background

I and many others who have met Soering, read his books and reviewed the many articles about the case on his website believe strongly he should not have to spend the rest of his life in prison for a crime he did not commit.
