Convicting the innocent: death row and America’s broken system of justice

March 15 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

Event Navigation

Cohen chronicles nearly 100 cases of wrongful conviction in which the convicted party was exonerated after serving sentences sometimes in excess of 30 years, most of it in solitary confinement. He reveals how eyewitness error, jailhouse snitch testimony, racism, junk science, prosecutorial misconduct, and incompetent counsel have populated America’s prisons with the innocent.

GUEST SPEAKER

STANLEY COHEN – a veteran award-winning journalist, author of ten previous books and has worked as an editor, writer, and reporter for newspapers and magazines.

Bagels and coffee are available for a nominal fee.
