The Wrongful Conviction of Dr Stuart White
Updates and How to Support His Legal Defense
Feb 23rd Update
Stuart's new attorney submitted the motion for a new trial, and the hearing is now set for March 6th at 930am Central Time, where the judge will decide whether or not to grant a new trial. The prosecutors are quite aggressive, and will strongly contest the motion that day. If Stuart is granted a new trial, there is a chance he will be released from jail until the new trial date.
From Stuart's wife Nicole: "Please pray that Judge Hill grants a new trial, and that Stuart is able to come home. Your continued love and support truly mean everything to Stuart and me. We seriously could not be doing this alone. The more support we have for Stuart in person on March 6th, the better. If you're able to come that day we would be so appreciative. It starts at 930am, but arriving earlier would be better to ensure a seat."
The courtroom address is:
1201 Franklin Street
16th Floor, Courtroom #232
Houston, TX 77002
Note: this is the courtroom address. Stuart's new mailing address is below, in the Feb 5th Update.
Also, if anyone has visited him at the new facility (link in Feb 5th update), please let me know specifics of how it works, and anything you'd like to share of your visit, so I can post it here. Thank you. - M
Feb 6th Update
Feb 5th Update
They moved Stuart again today. He's now in the Lasalle Jefferson County Downtown Jail, two hours from Houston, in Beaumont, TX. He said it is stressful moving, but he likes the new facility better than Houston (Beaumont is smaller - about 500 there, compared to 4,000 in Houston). His "cellies" are nicer, there are fewer of them in the cell - about 25, and "they are all calm." He has a tablet computer again, can watch movies there and has more access to the phone than in Houston.
Stuart says he still can't believe this is happening, and it's so foreign for him to be navigating jail life and all of its complexities, and he is faithful that God is sending him home to be reunited with his family.
Please pray strongly that Judge Hill will grant him a retrial. If that happens Stuart goes home immediately, until the new trial date. The judge will decide this month. If the judge does not allow for a retrial, then Stuart's attorney will go to the appellate court and ask them for a new trial. That process takes about two years.

Jan 26th Update
Legal Update: Stuart's excellent appeals attorney is preparing to present the case to the current judge between now and Feb 20th for a retrial (new trial or do-over). Please pray and hold an intention for the judge to grant a new trial, and contribute what you can to Stuart's legal expenses. Thank you! - M
Jan 24th Update
For those who feel moved to visit Stuart, here is the relevant page for his facility (Harris County Jail): https://www.harriscountyso.org/JailInfo/InmateVisitation
Even though visits are limited to 20 minutes, I know Stuart would love to see you and deeply appreciate it. It was a great honor, blessing and joy for me to spend time with him at the Post, TX facility.
If not, please consider sending him a letter of support and encouragement. Details on that below.
Jan 23rd Update #2
Below are images of the publicly-available court records. Thanks to Stuart's friends and colleagues in Texas, Jennifer Withey and Dr Jeff Crippen, for these. Horrifyingly, Stuart, 66 years old, for some reason I cannot fathom, has been sentenced to 25 years. Though we have hope the retrial will be sooner, it is more likely that he will be wrongly incarcerated, away from his family, for at least a year.
Please share this page with anyone who may know him, so they can know what has happened, of his innocence, and have a chance to help. More than ever, the family needs prayers, and contributions for what may become a protracted and costly legal process.
May God and His angels watch over them and so fill them with His love that the pain of their separation be soothed. Thank you all for your support of Stuart and his family on this dark day.
If you would like to write to Stuart, I'm sure he would love that. His address is:
Stuart Fraser White, 5C2 05H, SPN# 02715857, 1200 Baker Street, Houston, TX 77002
That is also the address of his current facility, Harris County Jail, in case you would like to visit.
Jan 23rd Update
From Stuart's beloved wife, Dr Nicole Fodel:
"This wasn’t the day for Stuart to come home. After his sentencing, Leah and I met with his appellate attorney. The next step is to try to get the current judge to grant a new trial. There is a 1-2% chance of the judge granting a new trial, and it costs an additional $25,000 for this step.
If the current judge does not grant a new trial then we go to the appellate court and ask for a new trial- this will take 12-18 months minimum. There is some information that may persuade the current judge to grant a new trial but the attorney was careful to say that it will not likely change his mind.
We saw Stuart today in the courtroom and my heart just longed to be with him again. He is a precious man and does not deserve any of this. My faith in God is unending and I will never stop fighting for Stuart. Thank you for your continued prayers and support- this journey has only just begun."
Jan 22nd Update
From Dr Jeff Crippen, DC
This horrific injustice to an incredible human being, Godly man and brilliant doctor has been a shock. I'm working with his wife Nicole to raise funds towards the estimated $150,000 in legal fees for his appeal. One of the top appeals attorneys in Texas with 40 years experience has agreed to take on his case. He remarked that he has overturned convictions in appeals cases that were not as strong as Stuart's, so we are hopeful.

Stuart's Supporters Speak
"You are totally right on getting everyone to focus on the future and support his legal efforts. He is truly one of the good guys and a very valuable being, and I am praying along side of you and everyone else for a speedy successful appeal."
"We are steadfastly praying for tomorrow’s results for Dr. White. I have Dr. White covered in prayer in South Alabama. We are specifically lifting him up this evening in our prayer meeting. We have some amazing prayer warriors at my church, and I am so thankful to have them. I thank you once again for going to visit Dr. White and standing in the gap for all of us. Hopefully I will get to meet you someday. Your sister in Christ and Chiropractic..."

I'm praying that the Holy Spirit will be with him as he goes through this. I remember the first time I met him. What a great man he is."
"I sent him a letter this week and hope to visit him in Houston this month. I live out in the hill country by Fredericksburg and I raise monarch butterflies in the fall and spring when they naturally fly over Texas. Recently I found a couple caterpillars at the ranch that are not supposed to be here right now, (all the butterflies should already be in Mexico.) But I had a male monarch emerge yesterday and I named him Stuart Fraser. I took some pictures of him and his release. I focus every day on him being free ☀️✨🙏. ." - Kimberly Kraus LAc, ACN
"I have been following him for many years & got to finally meet him in person at an event last September. I wrote him a letter as soon as you shared his situation & address & sent his wife a note & check. He has been in my prayers & I was hoping to write him again, at his new location & wondered if there is anything else I can do besides funding. I have a great deal of respect for him & have no doubt he’s innocent. If you have his new mailing address, could you forward it to me? God bless."
"My husband and I are well trained in Attunement care so we began enfolding Stuart and family right away. And we continue to send our love and support. I had the honour of meeting Dr. White many years ago."
"He has been my teacher for 20 years and it has just been so shocking and sad what has happened."
"So many of our thoughts are that Stuart will be released soon. And many more are just love and care for all of you."
"Know that we are with you in heart and spirit. Our thoughts are for a new trial!"
"I miss my friend very much. I looked at some photos of when we were at your house last year and I felt heartbroken. I am still in disbelief. Praying for you, Nicole, and the two beautiful kids' souls every day."
