Angela Garcia

Send Angela an uplifting message

After accepting a plea deal, Angela will be released from prison in 2022

In 2001, Ohio Public Defender Wrongful Conviction Project client Angela Garcia was convicted of a 1999 house fire that killed her two daughters. Garcia’s conviction rested on circumstantial evidence and a flawed arson investigation—a forensic discipline that’s been scrutinized in recent years for lacking scientific validity. In 2016, on the eve of the hearing where Garcia planned to present evidence that she was entitled to a new trial, prosecutors agreed to a greatly reduced sentence in exchange for a plea.
