Dear Reverend and Mrs. Kimble:

It was nice to meet you yesterday; again, I am sorry that it was under such. difficult circumstances. I just wanted to briefly follow-up with you about what you can be doing to help me. As we discussed, please write down everything you found even slightly suspicious about the investigation, including the witnesses against Ronnie, police misconduct, etc. Also, please document everything you believe might amount to ineffective assistance of trial counsel -- for example, any misleading or inaccurate information given to Ted or you by any of the trial attorneys, especially Zimmerman and Crumpler; any pressure that the attorneys applied to Ted to convince him to plead guilty; etc. Finally, it might assist me if you can document anything you remember about the conditions of Ted's confinement during the time period between his guilty plea and sentencing hearing.

Thank you for all the information you gave me last night. Any documentation you can provide will help me clarify that information and may be very useful in a later Motion for Appropriate Relief on Ted's behalf.

Please know that I will do everything within my power to help Ted. I will be in touch whenever I file something in Ted's case. In the meantime, feel free to write or call if you have any questions or concerns.


Danielle M. Carman

Assistant Appellate Defender
