Justice Delayed: A Conversation About Wrongful Conviction
Free. Registration required.
Join us for a discussion about the work of Philadelphia’s Conviction Integrity Unit, which investigates claims of innocence and wrongful conviction. The panel includes Andrew Swainson, whose conviction was recently overturned after being incarcerated for 31 years for a crime he did not commit, as well as Andrew Wellbrock of the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, whose investigation led to the exoneration of Mr. Swainson. Moderated by Damon McCool, Public Programming Specialist at Eastern State Penitentiary.
