erin moriarty wrongful conviction

Wrongful conviction day

October 2, 2015

“Once someone is convicted, everything shifts. It’s up to that person to prove their innocence.” That was the message students received today at a disheartening panel discussion on wrongful convictions in the United States. Erin Moriarty ’77, anchor of CBS’ 48 Hours, discussed her on-air work, which on multiple occasions has led to exonerations. She was joined by Joanna Feigenbaum ’11 of the Wrongful Conviction Project and Jennifer Bergeron of the Ohio Innocence Project, both of whom have dedicated their careers to proving defendants were wrongfully convicted. Clarence Elkins, who was exonerated by the Ohio Innocence Project after securing the DNA evidence that proved his innocence himself while an inmate, also joined the panel.
