The Wrongful Conviction of Jamie Snow – TIPLINE: 888-815-9299

New Petition Asks McLean County State’s Attorney Jason Chambers To Allow DNA Testing In The Jamie Snow Case

By: Article by Wrongful Conviction News

Injustice Anywhere, an organization working to correct wrongful convictions, has launched a petition JamieSnowUpdateasking McLean County State’s Attorney Jason Chambers to allow DNA testing in the Jamie Snow case.

Jamie Snow was wrongfully convicted in 2000, of a 1991 “cold case” murder and armed robbery of a gas station attendant in Bloomington, Illinois. Snow is an innocent man who remains in prison while DNA evidence goes untested in his case, even though not one shred of physical evidence has ever linked Snow to the crime.

For nearly 8 years the McLean County State’s Attorney’s Office (SAO) has fought DNA testing in this case, despite the fact that the University of Chicago’s Exoneration Project has agreed to pay for ALL DNA testing at NO COST to McLean County tax payers. The petition simply asks Jason Chambers to allow the Exoneration Project to pay for the DNA testing. There is absolutely no logical reason for Chambers to continue blocking the tests. There is no doubt that if this crime had occurred today, that the state would test every single piece of physical evidence collected from the crime scene.

The Injustice Anywhere petition provides detailed information about the Jamie Snow case and also includes an audio message from Snow. Please take a moment to read the petition and listen to Snow’s audio recording. You can click on this link to view the petition: Support DNA Testing for Jamie Snow

    To test the DNA would prove the man was wrongfully convicted and the States Attorney’s office would have to be held accountable for this. If you have been in McLean County for any length of time then you know they are not going to let that happen. Lol Our justice system as a whole is PATHETIC!! Jamie Snow is not the first to spend MANY years in prison for a crime he DID NOT commit but was wrongfully convicted of in this county. I personally know of two others! Like I said…PATHETIC!! How do those who put these men there sleep at night?! McLean County Justice system?! LMAO!!

    Very well said. The current SA did not do this, but he should fix it. He could be a hero, but chooses to fall in line behind his predecessors. And you are correct, Jamie is NOT the only one, by a long shot.

    They shouldn’t be because they didn’t do it. But they sure could fix it. Thank you!

    Surely the State’s Attorney must have some rationale for the refusal… what’s his story?

    Actually not really. Here is an article responding to some things he said on Facebook. He basically says it won’t prove his innocence – but that is not what the Illinois Post-Conviction Statute says. Even then, he can’t know what it will prove if it hasn’t been tested. The source of the samples is unknown. You can read the arguments here:, the DNA motion is at the bottom, along with the responses.

    This is another one of these cases where the state would rather keep an innocent man in jail than admit they were wrong. American justice is an abomination.
