Join us Friday November 9 to watch Anthony Graves, aka U.S. Death Row Exoneree #138, on the CNN series “Death Row Stories." The "Family Lies" episode details Anthony's incredible ordeal with Texas' justice system.
Anthony spent 18 ½ years behind bars, 16 of these years in solitary confinement and 12 years of my sentence on death row.
In October 2010, all charges against him were dropped and he was set free. Prosecutors reviewing the case found not only that he was innocent, but that then prosecuting attorney Charles Sebesta had engaged in numerous acts of prosecutorial misconduct.
Graves has turned the tragedy of his wrongful conviction into a fight for a smarter criminal justice system. Today Graves works in Texas, and travels around the country and the world enlightening politicians, criminal justice reform organizations, law students, and the general public about the injustices of our system and our need for comprehensive criminal justice reform.
After the film, Anthony will answer your questions and sign copies of his new book, "Infinite Hope."
The screening will be held in Union East – Union Cinema (UNE 109).
