Michigan Innocence Clinic works to free those wrongfully convicted
Imagine being picked up by police for a crime you did not commit. You plead your innocence, but no one believes you.
Now imagine you're convicted and sentenced to prison for that crime.
For our What's Working series, Michigan Radio host Christina Shockley spoke with David Moran, the co-director of the Michigan Innocence Clinic.
The Clinic, at the University of Michigan Law School, aims to overturn the convictions of people who were wrongfully convicted.
It's estimated that 1,500 people currently in Michigan prisons were wrongfully convicted.
You can hear the interview with David Moran above.
And here's a video from the Michigan Innocence Clinic on the case of Dwayne Provience who spent ten years in prison for a crime he did not commit.
