It’s almost normal for us to hear the story of a wrongfully
convicted person going free after years in prison.

The latest? Cornelius Dupree Jr. who was declared innocent after serving 30 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.  Dupree, now 51 said, “Whatever your truth is, you have to stick with it” and “It’s a joy to be free again.”

Let us discover together the why’s and what’s of wrongful convictions.  Over the next few posts we’ll explore questions such as:  Have we executed an innocent man?  How many wrongful convictions are there per year?  And, why do they happen?
