San Diego-Based Innocence Project Continues Fight For Remaining Members Of The California 12

GUEST:

Justin Brooks, project director, California Innocence Project


Transcript

A 100-mile march was held last weekend from Berkeley to Sacramento to urge California Gov. Jerry Brown to grant clemency to the remaining six members of the California 12, a group of men and women who the California Innocence Project believes were wrongly convicted.

The march was organized by the San Diego-based Innocence Project at California Western School of Law. Project Director Justin Brooks recently announced that Quintin Morris became the sixth member of the California 12 to be released from prison. Morris was granted parole after serving 24 years for attempted murder.

Brooks discusses Morris' case and the exoneration movement, Wednesday on Midday Edition.
