Jens Soering is a prize-winning author of nine books who has been unjustly imprisoned since 1986. In 2010 to 2012, new DNA-tests, a new witness and a long-lost FBI crime scene profile emerged which support his claim of innocence - but the Commonwealth of Virginia will not let him return to his native country of Germany.
For a recent overview of the case, listen to a five-part series on VA public radio station WVTF or read the transcripts of the five episodes.
A full-length documentary film about Jens' case will be released in late 2015. You can watch the movie trailer here .
On the following pages you will find background information as well as current developments relating to the Soering case. There are detailed explanations, numerous press reports as well as several TV interviews. In additon you can read excerpts from Jens' books and some of his many published articles on criminal justice issues and contemplative spirituality.
