Against The Death Penalty: Wrongful Conviction & Exoneration
Jeffrey Deskovic, exoneree, The Jeffrey Deskovic Foundation for Justice
Exoneration has been incredibly important for those who oppose capital punishment since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, 138 death row inmates have had their convictions overturned. Building Bridges highlights The Jeffrey Deskovic Foundation For Justice that came into being for the prevention and eradication of wrongful convictions, as the result of its founder's own wrongful conviction for rape and murder at age 16. At 33 years of age Jeff was exonerated and left prison, with a mission to prevent what happened to him from happening to others.
