Under pressure to make an arrest in an unsolved triple homicide (April 22, 1993) and a double armed robbery/attempted murder (July 4, 1993, Orlando was eventually acquitted of these charges) that took place in three of the most affluent communities in Riverside County, the Sheriff’s Department and District Attorney’s Office filed false charges and fabricated DNA evidence in order to achieve a conviction. This is not the first time.
"I was 19 years old when I was taken captive and framed for these crimes. I am 41 years old today. In all this time, I have been wrongfully deprived of the simplest freedoms and luxuries. I cannot walk outside and breathe fresh air, or hike into the mountains and drink, or wash in a cold river if I choose. I cannot provide for and look after those of my most vulnerable and dependent loved ones. I cannot attend sacred and or social gatherings and ceremonies with my family and tribe or fellow tribes. The last time I saw my Mother was when she sat before the jury to ask them not to kill me for a crime I didn’t commit. My name is Orlando Dontece Watley and I am a POLITICAL PRISONER".

McCarvill to have given unreliable evidence in the state’s case against William Richards, whose conviction was reversed. In the state’s case against Kevin Cooper, Justice William A. Fletcher mentioned Daniel Gregonis 13 times in direct connection to fabrication of evidence against Kevin Cooper.
