Panel to focus on wrongful convictions
Posted November 14, 2013; 10:16 a.m.
The panel "'I Didn't Do It": A Conversation about Wrongful Convictions," will focus on how advocates, attorneys and journalists spotlight judicial abuses and work to free the innocent. The panel moderator is Mike McGraw, a fall-term Ferris Professor of Journalism at Princeton who is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter on leave from the Kansas City Star. He will be joined by Kate Germond, director of Princeton-based Centurion Ministries, which has freed 53 wrongfully convicted individuals in the last 30 years; Mark Schand, a recent exoneree who served 27 years in prison before being released; and John Jay College of Criminal Justice lecturer Eugene O'Donnell, a former law enforcement officer and prosecutor.
