You have all heard the stories of wrongful convictions. People incarcerated for 10 years, 20 years and even more. Once you are convicted, your chances of reversing a verdict are slim.

Nothing will stain the legacy of a Prosecutor, Judge or Sheriff, more than convicting an innocent person. It is even more repugnant when the conviction of an innocent man, results in those responsible being rewarded with promotions and self-serving propaganda.

Baldwin County has it’s own wrongfully convicted man, Murray “Bubba” Lawrence. His conviction defies logic, evidence, and any basic investigation. Most amazing is the fact that the prosecution, defense, jury, nor judge, ever established any timeline. The timeline established by the 2000 plus page transcript, establishes a timeline that proves Mr. Lawrence had multiple witness alibi’s. How this was overlooked is highly suspicious.

Baldwin County has a history of poor District Attorneys, going back 30 years. The prosecuting District Attorney at that time was David Whetstone since retired. Mr. Whetstone’s presentation in court was pathetic. His ego lead him to make a deal with the devil

“I have made a deal, a deal with the devil so that evidence could be heard, so the dots could be connected. If you don’t like that deal, you come after your D.A.”

– David Whetstone.

David Whetstone bragged about his conviction of Bubba Lawrence while he was involved in the Steve Nodine case. In that case Whetstone was as inept as he was in Bubba’s case.

The pathologist, Paul McGarry, later testified under questioning from Whetstone that he could not rule out the possibility that the victim had been shot. The jury convicted the defendant, Murray “Bubba” Lawrence Jr.

“I proved that he was shot. I had to disprove the medical examiner,” Whetstone said.

Baldwin County Sheriff, Hoss Mack, a lieutenant with the sheriff office at the time, and chief investigating officer, has been highly controversial as a sheriff. In recent years, 7 people have lost their lives at the hands of the BCSO. Please research our page and sign the petition.

The Judge at the time, was Robert Wilters, the current District Attorney for Baldwin County. Justice comes in many forms and I hope Judge Wilters receives some justice for presiding over such a poor and inept prosecution.

Willy Huntly was the defense attorney and his consistent objections during the trial fell on deaf ears. Two attempts at appeal failed due to attorneys dropping the ball, but retaining over 50,000 dollars in legal fees.


The Ripp Report has been investigating this case for going on two years. The Ripp Report believes Murray “Bubba” Lawrence is innocent. His innocence is proven by the trial transcript and the timeline that the court established, as a matter of record. The Ripp Report is committed to seeking justice for Mr. Lawrence and welcomes you to follow our progress.

    I adore Murray Lawrence (BOOBIE Jack)! He is a hardworking reputable man. I am so grateful for him. I am lucky to know him and his family.
    My HOPE is for a new FAIR trial for his son.

  2. People, please get involved. This case is unprecedented. Facts speak for themselves based on a timeline that has been fully vetted by Paul. Something that ever happened during the trial of 2003.

    Even if you don’t want to take the time to read all of the details, sign the petition to at least get a fair trial!

  3. Boobie Jack ticked off the wrong people. Even though he was part of an old family lineage, the new royalty that blew in here after Katrina has established its dominance via Elliot, Haygood and Stacey. Today, SCB is the power broker and financed via Nathan Cox.
    The newer people of Baldwin are too busy paying bills and raising their kids. Bit a few of us know how these bastards have usurped the power structure of Baldwin
    May Cox, Boone, Haygood, Elliott, Hix, and the rest of the apparatchik burn in Hell
    This is why God made Hell

    • Boobie Jack is in the way of SCB’s plan
      Hey you politicians who use SCB Catalyst: We will vote you out. Remember Tucker Dorsey? He lost and so will you. We know who you are and know who is supporting you with money. We are coming after them too. We are organized but we don’t need Facebook page to organize against you
      Don’t bother looking us up on these social media sites because we meet in person and face to face. Cox, Wolcott, Belaton, Columbia Southern with Ken Styron, and the other groups please know that we too can get things done

  4. Please present facts.
    Thank you.
