Ghost of the Innocent Man
The Duke Law Innocence Project welcomed Benjamin Rachlin to discuss his new book, "Ghost of the Innocent Man: A True Story of Trial and Redemption." Rachlin's debut chronicles the wrongful conviction and subsequent exoneration of Willie Grimes. Rachlin was joined by Mr. Grimes, who was exonerated in 2012 after being wrongly incarcerated for 24 years, and his attorney, Chris Mumma. Ghost of the Innocent Man also chronicles the creation of the NC Innocence Inquiry Commission, which was spearheaded by Ms. Mumma and Duke Law Professors Theresa Newman and James Coleman.
