I'm not sure Jesse is innocent but what I don't like is that a lot of Nev's fans are just blindly signing this petition without even knowing anything about the case.
Here's what Nev wrote on Facebook:
Hey everybody. I don't normally ask for favors, but it would mean a lot to me if you could help me with something. My very good friends who produced CATFISH movie also made a doc called Capturing the Friedmans about a young man who was wrongfully accused and jailed for 13 years! If we can get enough signatures on this petition in the next 12 hours there is a good chance he can have his record cleared and live a normal life. Please take a minute to check it out and sign if you can. Thanks!
