The Innocence Project: There but for the Grace of God, justice
November 8, 2019
Hosted by Judge Jim Gray (Ret.)
The slogan is that "Better that ten guilty people go free than one person be wrongly convicted." But that is not the reality. Our guest, Justin Brooks, Esq., who is a founder and currently Director of the California Innocence Project, has, himself, walked 31 people who had been wrongly convicted out of prison after proving their innocence. And this includes Brian Banks, the football player and focus of a recent movie. Listen to this episode and you too will be stricken about how often wrongful convictions occur in our country. Fortunately, people like Mr. Brooks are there. So our system needs to be reformed, and Justin will explain from first-hand experience how this should take place. "There but for the Grace of God Go I."
