Wrongful Conviction Day 10.02.23 By Innocence Staff
In the lead-up to Wrongful Conviction Day on Oct. 2, the Innocence Project and the Innocence Project of Texas are sharing a series of powerful stories of individuals who were exonerated of crimes they did not commit. The series is the result of a collaboration with StoryCorps, a nonprofit organization dedicated to recording and preserving stories while fostering meaningful conversations.
These stories, which will be preserved in the Library of Congress, aim to educate future generations about the causes and impact of wrongful convictions.
Speaking to friend and former reporter Bob Ray Sanders, Cory Session details his family’s effort with the Innocence Project of Texas to exonerate his brother Timothy Cole, who sadly died in prison in 1999 while serving a 25-year sentence for a rape he didn’t commit.
