Help us wish GIP exoneree Clarence Harrison a very happy birthday and 14th year of freedom! After serving almost 18 years for a crime he did not commit, Clarence was released on August 31 of 2004. Today is his birthday!

Since then he has been raising awareness about the problem of wrongful convictions by sharing his story: this photo is from Wrongful Conviction Day 2017, when GIP exonerees took to the streets to promote recognition of actual innocence cases.

Happy Birthday Clarence!!!

But why was she so certain? And is there reason to question how reliable her identification really was?
