Sentenced to Life without the possibility parole in the State of Washington back in 2006, he was 20 years old
The boy who came to prison has become a man with a purpose, I now have a clear vision and a mission. I take responsibility for the actions that led me to this prison where I am sentenced to die. However, I am innocent of the crime of aggravated murder.
– Taylor Conley
My name is Taylor Tom Conley, I am founder of Designed Conviction, and this is the Free Taylor Project. You may be asking yourself, why free Taylor? So I would like to give you some insight into who I really am, where I’ve been, and where I’m going. My life has been a journey full of many struggles. I don’t make excuses or deny that there are a lot of demons in my past, so I will be fully transparent with all of you. In 2006 I was arrested and charged with aggravated murder in the 1st degree, or the alternative, felony murder in the first degree, I was subsenqently convicted of both charges. My lifestyle to that point was filled with drugs and a life of crime, which clouded my mind and distorted my vision. I became trapped in a world where I wasn’t taking responsibility.
As a troubled youth, I was introduced to the system at the age of 13. I was placed in a youth at risk program, which caused me to go into juvenile hall several times, resulting in me being pulled further away. At age 15, I was sent to a behavior modification program in Mexico, Casa by the Sea, then to a more difficult one in Jamaica, Tranquility Bay, where I spent a year in total. I was riddled with abuse and borderline torture that paved the way to what came next. I’m not making excuses, but the person I have become is not the person I once was. The boy who came to prison has become a man with a purpose, I now have a clear vision and a mission. I take responsibility for the actions that led me to this prison where I am sentenced to die. However, I am innocent of the crime of aggravated murder. If you would like to look into my case, please feel free to check it out https://casetext.com/case/state-v-conley-9
As I said I want to be open, honest and transparent about myself.
