We’re incredibly disappointed that the Georgia Attorney General's Office & Cook County District Attorney Dick Perryman are continuing to defend Devonia Inman's conviction. Why does it take so long to obtain justice in Georgia? https://t.co/1sWTx40R2y

Yesterday, exoneree and GIP Board member Jimmie C. Gardner met with GIP’s most recent exoneree, Kerry Robinson!

Jimmie was exonerated in April 2016 after 27 years of wrongful conviction, and Kerry was just exonerated last week after nearly 18 years of wrongful conviction.

We know their meeting was undoubtedly bittersweet considering their shared experiences as wrongfully convicted men, but we are so excited to welcome Kerry into our exoneree family!

Yesterday, our friends at the Wisconsin Innocence Project and Atlanta colleagues—including GIP Board Member Anna Halsey—argued before the Supreme Court of Georgia in an appeal on behalf of Ashley and Albert Debelbot, two young U.S. Army veterans wrongfully convicted in the 2008 death of their newborn daughter in Columbus, Georgia.

At Tuesday’s oral argument, the Debelbots’ attorney argued ineffective assistance of counsel for the trial lawyers’ failure to present alternate explanations for the child's death, and for failure of counsel to object to the Muscogee County prosecutor’s closing argument that, in order to convict the parents, and that “You (the jury) don’t [even] have to be 51% sure” that the Debelbots’ committed murder to find them guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The Debelbots’ current lawyers also argued that the superior court judge wrongly applied legal standards to the medical evidence presented at the motions for new trial hearing, and that the Muscogee County District Attorney’s Office unlawfully suppressed CT scans of the child, which would have been favorable to the Debelbots’.

The Georgia Attorney General's Office through Paula K. Smith and Muscogee County District Attorney Julia Slater represent the State. Ashley and Albert Debelbot are serving life sentences for murder. They have been in prison for 11 years, and counting.

"Eleven years ago, our I-Team questioned the DNA evidence used to convict Kerry Robinson of rape in Colquitt County. Now, a team of lawyers using new computer technology raised enough questions about that DNA evidence to convince a prosecutor and a judge to set Kerry Robinson free."

Wonderful News!!! GIP Client Kerry Robinson was exonerated and released today!

At approximately 3:30 p.m. on January 8, 2020, Kerry walked out of Coffee Correctional Facility a free man, after spending nearly 18 years in prison for a rape that he did not commit.

Earlier in the morning, a judge vacated Mr. Robinson's conviction and the state dismissed the charges against him. New, exculpatory DNA evidence helped show that Mr. Robinson is innocent of the 1993 rape and robbery of a woman in her home. He was accused of being one of three perpetrators, armed with a long-barreled gun.

Mr. Robinson's wrongful conviction was based entirely on an incentivized cooperator and faulty forensic expert testimony. But thanks to your support and GIP's diligent work on his case (along with co-counsel Rodney Zell), he is now free.

On behalf of Mr. Robinson, his family (including two children), and the entire staff of Georgia Innocence Project, THANK YOU for your support. Learn more about Kerry's story here: https://www.georgiainnocenceproject.org/cases/exonerees/kerry-robinson/
