New York Exoneree Kicks Off Justice Series at Quinnipiac University

On Tuesday, September 24, at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, Exoneree Fernando Bermudez will present “The Price of Being Wrong” which will kick off the “Dilemmas of Justice” lecture series. Bermudez spent 18 years behind bars for a crime he didn’t commit before he was released and exonerated in November 2009. Bermudez, who is now a father of three and pursuing a degree in behavioral science, was wrongfully convicted in the 1991 shooting death of Raymond Blount outside of a New York City club. His conviction was based almost entirely on compromised eyewitness evidence. The talk will begin at 6 p.m. in the Carl Hansen Student Center, Room 225, on the Mount Carmel Campus and is open to the public.

 

The “Dilemmas of Justice Series” is designed to expose the community to contemporary topics that rest at the intersection of law, criminal justice and politics.
