At 17, Bryan Sheppard was the youngest of five people convicted in an arson fire in 1988 that killed six Kansas City firefighters. No physical evidence connected Bryan or his codefendants to the crime and a highly redacted DOJ report implicated at least two other individuals. Bryan's sentence was shortened, and he was released from prison this year after the US Supreme Court ruled that it is unconstitutional to impose mandatory life sentences on juveniles without first taking into account their individual circumstances and life history.

Joey Ellis-ForbesI can't say enough how happy I am you have been reunited with your loved ones.....But there is more to the story....The cost has been great....Of course the firefighters and the families as well as those who were convicted and their families....At this time I am asking for everyone now to pray for those of us BEHIND the scenes whose lives have been devastated as well.....Things are NOT as they appear.....Please pray for those of us that are collateral damage and our children who will NEVER be with us because of the threats that have caused some to live in hiding.....It's not much of a life I can tell you.....
