FFiR Programs present: The Innocence Project

The Innocence Project: The US Justice System, Wrongful Conviction and Exoneration Through DNA Testing

Date: Saturday April 26th

Time: 7:30 pm

Location: Rhodes Room, Brittany Hall (55 East 10th Street)

Join Antonio Yarbough and Karen Wolff for a discussion about how our justice system at times can get it terribly wrong and the devastating consequences for Mr. Yarbough and hundreds of others. Mr. Yarbough was exonerated by DNA testing in February 2013 – after 20 years of wrongful incarceration. Ms. Wolff, a former attorney now working as a social worker at the Innocence Project (with her MSW from NYU), has been assisting Mr. Yarbough with his transition from prison. Mr. Yarbough will discuss how he was wrongfully convicted, what prison was like, what led to his exoneration and what his life as a free person has been like so far. He and Ms. Wolff will also discuss the general issues and lack of resources most exonerees face after being released into a new world.

The Innocence Project is a national litigation and public policy organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted individuals through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.
