Reform the police and help those exonerated to obtain justice

I was wrongly sentenced and sentenced to death for murder in 1976. At the time, I was a young mother, wife, daughter and I was 27 years old. It took me 17 years to prove my innocence.

I was then a widow, an orphan, a grandmother and I was 45 years old. My two children, who were 9 years and 10 months old when I was incarcerated, grew up without me and were placed in foster care when my parents died in a plane crash.

My husband was executed on death row two and a half years before proof of our innocence was revealed.

I have a deep and personal knowledge of the US justice system and how it works. Like most systems, its main purpose is to perpetuate itself. And the people who work within this system are often attached to the status quo. So we who see the need for changes in the justice system are swimming against the tide. But the wind is changing!

Rehabilitation, reconciliation, healing

There are nearly 2,900 exempt in the United States. Many of the lucky ones had DNA available in their suitcases.

Project Innocence, which started in New York City and now has branches across the United States, works primarily with cases involving DNA. It is thanks to their brilliant work that many wrongly convicted are free today.
