Learn about the recently passed innocence laws in Virginia on Thursday, May 7 at 3 p.m. on Facebook Live.
Thomas Haynesworth, featured on the “The Innocence Files” docuseries, will join Virginia House Majority Leader Charniele Herring (D-Arlington), the Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project, and University of Virginia (UVA) Innocence Clinic client Darnell Phillps on Thursday, May 4 at 3 p.m. for a Facebook live conversation on groundbreaking new Virginia innocence laws that passed this April. Sign up to join the Facebook live event here.
Haynesworth, who was represented by the Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project and the Innocence Project, spent 27 years in prison for crimes he did not commit. What you might not know is that he barely won his bid for exoneration because Virginia has some of the toughest laws in the country for overturning wrongful convictions.
