IPF on the Radio

In the past few weeks, innocence issues have been the talk of the town on local and national public radio.

On February 4, 2008, NPR's show, Talk of the Nation, did a segment entitled, "What is Owed to the Wrongfully Convicted." Alan Crotzer, who was exonerated in Tampa, Florida on January 23, 2006, took part in the discussion, giving listeners a window into his wrongful conviction, his years in prison, and his continuing fight to put a comprehensive system in place to compensate him and others like him for the years that the State of Florida took from them. Also appearing were Barry Scheck, co-director of The Innocence Project in New York, and Rep. Ellyn Bogdanoff, Florida legislator who has proposed a compensation bill that provides many much needed services, but unfortunately excludes most of the present and future exonerees, including Alan Crotzer. You can find info on the program and listen to it here.

On February 20, 2008, I appeared on Florida Public Radio, out of Miami, Florida, on a show regarding innocence and the death penalty. You can listen to the show here.
