Larry Golden will present “Found Guilty but Really Innocent” at the Thoresen Recital Hall in the Putnam-Springer Center at Clay and State. The work of the project contributed to the emergence of a national innocence movement to investigate the cases of those who were unfairly incarcerated.
Golden will talk about why more than 1,000 people were convicted of serious crimes that they didn’t commit and have been released from prison, most from death row.
Golden will talk about how and why this is happening and what can be done, using examples from the Illinois Innocence Project to illustrate the nature of the problem.
Tonight’s’ presentation starts at 7 p.m.
