Kelsey Smith Briggs


Join our online petition. Help us fight this injustice.

With the new evidence that has been uncovered in this case, we have no doubt Raye Dawn will get a new trial.

However, we believe she should have never gone to trial in the first place and that she will never receive a fair trial in the State of Oklahoma.

Raye Dawn was taken to jail at the end of her trial in July, 2007 and has been in prison since her formal sentencing in September, 2007. She was sentenced to 27 years because the DA said she "should have known" Mike Porter was abusing Kelsey. If the trained professionals that visited Raye Dawn's home almost daily didn't know, how could she?

Raye Dawn has already been in prison too long. She deserves the right to grieve for the loss of her child; a right Kelsey's paternal family took from her with their conspiracy with Mike Porter and their hate campaign toward Raye Dawn.

Local channels (Oklahoma City channels only, not including Tulsa and other areas) reported 910 times on this case from October, 2005 to April, 2007. During that same time period, the Daily Oklahoman published 59 articles and the Shawnee News-Star published 62; all of these stories were the Briggs' and Mike Porter's version of what happened to Kelsey. With the media, billboards, buttons, bumper stickers, and the only side of the story being told from Kelsey's father's family (Raye Dawn's ex-in-laws), and Mike Porter's, Raye Dawn did not and will not get a fair trial.


Join us in this petition to have either the charges dropped against Raye Dawn so she can be exonerated or  time served so she can be released and grieve in peace.


Kathie Briggs said she'd be happy if Raye Dawn spent a year in prison. Well, her time has been served. A 27 year sentence is a ridiculous amount of time for "should have known" and unfortunately, it won't bring Kelsey back. Every mother deserves a chance to grieve. Every American deserves a fair and impartial jury! Raye Dawn has had neither.
