The Anatomy of a Wrongful Conviction

Date:
Thursday, April 18th
Time:
4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Event Description

Data from the National Registry of Exonerations shows on average nearly three individuals are exonerated every week in the United States. This community engagement forum will explore the inner-workings of wrongful convictions. Two panelists who were recently exonerated, after spending a combined 32 years in prison, will serve as panelists for a thought-provoking discussion on the factors leading up to their wrongful conviction, their experiences while incarcerated, the challenges they experienced post-exoneration, and policy recommendations for identifying and aiding those who have been wrongfully convicted.

Join Dr. Charles Bell as he interviews these panelists via Skype.
