Overview

A teenager, determined to end the reign of his abusive, alcoholic father, ends up accused of a murder he didn't commit.

A noted Klansman, Miran Thompson, has been killed, and the prime suspect in his murder case is seventeen-year-old Larry Henderson. Complicating matters, Larry's father, Officer Perry Henderson, is deeply involved in the case. To the casual observer, the evidence against Larry is overwhelming. If convicted he would surely receive the death penalty. In order to avoid death row, Perry convinces his son to plead guilty. He promises to do all he can to prove Larry innocent.

But are Perry's motivations so pure? The father and son's turbulent past has created a deep rift between them, and Perry is afraid of the teen's repeated promises for vengeance. Believing he is being set up for murder, Perry instead aims the evidence at his own son, allowing him to take the fall — but will his scheme succeed, or will Larry be proven innocent?

    Wrongfully Accused

    Wrongfully Accused

    One day in Mississippi, 17 y/o Larry Henderson is arrested and wrongfully accused of murder of a white man. Mississippi was known to be one of the states that believed in racial inequality and a black man being accused of anything could get him convicted or hung. White men were being murdered one after another, but when one well known white klansman is murdered all evidence suddenly turns to Larry. Nomatter if Larry is guilty or innocent or if there is actual evidence against him, Larry must go down for the crime. The person closest to him makes sure he's convicted and that person is his father Officer Perry Henderson, the only black officer in that county. How can a father be adamant that his son must be convicted and do the time, why is this so important to him, why is one journalist ready to save Larry from his fate? This book holds these answers. Caged Innocence is one tear-jerking book. It sets the scene in the deep south, the injustice, the racism, a father and son torn apart. This book is a masterpiece ready to be put on the big screen. Caged Innocence also goes deeper by reminding us what it means to be human and wrongfully accused. Mr. Richard I have to say this is by far one of the best books I have read and an EXCELLENT job well done. Can't wait to see this on the big screen. Kudos and u deserve more than 5 stars.

    CAGED INNOCENCE a must read!!

    This book is one of the most inspiring books I've read in a very long time. It gives the account of a young teenage boy who was charged with murder and spent the better part of his life behind bars. He was wronged by the one person who should have protected him, his very own father who was a police officer.After his exoneration and subsequent release from prison, he held no resentment toward his father or the system that kept him caged for a crime he didn't commit. In the end, he came out victorious, not only because of his release from prison, but also because he found God and was full of forgiveness and love for those who wronged him.

    When a young boy is accused of a murder that he swears that he didn't commit, he believes that the only person that can help prove him innocent is his father. But later finds that the man that raised him was behind his wrongful imprisonment.

    This story took me on an emotional roller coaster ride. To think that this story was inspired by true events and will be made into a movie sparked my interest. I'll tell you, I was not disappointed. Larry Henderson having to endure the betrayal of his father, who happened to be the first law enforcement officer of color, blew me away. I don't think that I should say anything else about this book except to say that its a must read. It's been a long time since I have been so capatived by a story, and I'm looking forward to how it will play out when the theatrical release hits the big screen. I don't know much about the author, but I'm looking forward to more of his work. I guarantee that when the right people pick up this book, Caged Innocence will fly off the shelves.
