And Fritz will be among the speakers on Thursday when the Innocence Project holds an unprecedented gathering of exonerees, legal experts and others to discuss the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court case of Innocence Project client William Osborne. The event, at Georgetown University Law Center at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, is free and open to the public.

Joining Fritz, and several other exonerees will be Michele Mallin, who was the victim of a rape in 1985 for which Timothy Cole was wrongfully convicited. Cole died in prison in 1999, but Mallin has been working with his family in recent months to clear his name posthumously.
