Join the Wrongful Convictions Clinic and Innocence Project in celebrating the hard earned freedom of Howard Dudley, a client of the Duke Wrongful Conviction's Clinic. In early March, a judge in Kinston, North Carolina finally freed Howard Dudley, ruling that he had no confidence in the 1992 trial in which the Kinston man was convicted of sexually assaulting his 9-year-old daughter. Additionally the judge found that his daughter's recantation of the allegation was credible, and in fact no abuse occurred. Professors from the Wrongful Convictions Clinic, as well as clinic students, will walk through what led to Howard's conviction and how he eventually achieved his freedom. There will also be a discussion of the reintegration process, and what the road ahead for Howard holds. Read more here: http://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/crime/article63564927.html#storyl.... Lunch will be served. Sponsored by the Innocence Project. For more information, please contact Shannon Welch at email@example.com.
