Exonerees John White, Calvin Johnson, Clarence Harrison and Bobby Jean Johnson collectively spent nearly a century -- 95 years -- wrongfully imprisoned. They're pictured here, with loved ones and GIP staff, for a new year's luncheon at Atlanta's legendary soul food restaurant, Paschal's. This is our #MondayMotivation!
BREAKING: We're thrilled to announce that GIP & Southern Center for Human Rights client Johnny Lee Gates has been granted a new trial on the basis of new, exculpatory DNA evidence! Mr. Gates has spent the past 42 years in prison—26 of them on death row and the remaining 16 under a sentence of life without parole.
GIP's Jennifer Whitfield returns to the office on January 4, following her first court appearance as a staff attorney! She and pro bono co-counsel Mary Dayton attended a hearing in Forsyth County with GIP client Troy Turan. Go Jennifer!
We’re thrilled for Mr. Burton — but heartbroken at his story. Can you imagine losing your mother to murder at just 16, and then being railroaded into falsely confessing? Every wrongful conviction is absolutely devastating. #MondayMotivationhttps://t.co/vNLH6qsojx
