Brief Summary

During the closing months of 1984 and extending through March 25, 1985, a number of violent rapes occurred around Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas. As a result, females, both students and employees of the university, along with those who worked in the general area, were caught up in a wave of terror in the persona of the Tech rapist. A PLEA FOR JUSTICE: The Timothy Cole Story describes how a 24-year-old black student and an army veteran became entangled in a web of deceit cast by an overly-aggressive police investigation, unjustly arrested without any physical evidence to link him to the crime, falsely convicted, and then incarcerated for aggravated sexual assault on a fellow student whom he had never seen until the first day of his trial. Before he passed away while serving the thirteenth of a twenty-five year sentence, Tim Cole expressed a fervent desire to be vindicated, exonerated, and pardoned, and in an effort to honor his last wishes, a devoted mother and family, supported and represented by the Innocence Project of Texas, carried the fight to the state courts, to both houses of the state's legislature, to the Board of Pardons and Paroles, and finally to the governor.
