Hi Everyone,
My name is Charles Douglas Raby (1970) and I am on Death Row in Texas for falsely being convicted of a murder I did not commit. For over two decades I have been sitting here waiting for some miracle that can get me released. My DNA doesn’t match what was found at the crime yet here I still sit waiting for help.

Being here for years and years can really break someone’s spirit. I am looking for some hope and positivity in my life which is why I decided to join Write A Prisoner.

Just to let you know a little bit about me; I love reading, listening to music, working out, learning the Choctaw language and writing to people. I am a kind person who has a lot to offer as far as friendship goes and am a very good listener. I love meeting new people and hopefully I can meet some wonderful people on here.

It would be great if I can meet pen-pals who are willing to help me in my fight to prove my innocence. Anyone with computer skills can be a great asset as well as with media contacts. Please, if there is anyone willing to help prove my innocence, I would love for you to write, even if it’s just for advice.

But if you are also looking for a friend, I am here for you too. I would love anyone to write. Age, race, or gender doesn’t matter. As long as you are a kind and caring person, you are always welcome in my life.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and I hope you will give me a chance to be a part of your life.
