Brandon was arrested in October of 2005, just six days after the bodies of his parents were found.
Brandon was convicted on two counts of Capital Murder for his parents’ deaths. The prosecution did not seek the death penalty, so Brandon was automatically sentenced to LWOP (Life WithOut Parole).
Yes, Brandon has actually taken a couple of polygraph examinations. You can see the results in the Documents page, but needless to say Brandon passed them with flying colors. He has always from day one maintained his innocence, and even though polygraphs are not admissible in court, they definitely are a tool to help find the truth.
Can they? Yes. Will they? No. Unfortunately the Innocence Project, even though they are a wonderful organization and we fully endorse and support their efforts, mainly focus on cases with DNA evidence that proves the convicted are innocent. In Brandon’s case, there has not been that kind of evidence found yet, so the innocence project has refused to take on Brandon’s case.
