Photo of black Vista, CA resident walking his dogs makes him burglary suspect.

Our very own Justin Brooks was interviewed for this great article in the San Diego Tribune:

“Justin Brooks, director of the California Innocence Project at California Western School of Law in San Diego, said bad IDs are the leading cause of wrongful convictions in America. And most of the exonerations he’s worked on over the past 20 years involve bad IDs by witnesses with a different racial background than the defendant.”

“‘Sometimes we make mistakes and those kinds of mistakes can devastate people’s lives and leave their reputation in tatters,’ Brooks said.”

Meet Alissa, @CA_Innocence Litigation Coordinator (and all around amazing woman) “Winning a case where someone has been incarcerated for decades, there is no comparable feeling. Getting someone out is a huge accomplishment... The clients are what matters ” #ThisIsWhoWeAre

Meet Jeremy, Senior Staff Attorney Fellow - “A big part of my love for this work is because of exonerees like Alan Gimenez, Uriah Courtney, and Brian Banks. I've seen how wrongful conviction had decimated their lives, and how they’ve made lives anew. It’s very inspiring” #XONR8

Meet Alyson. She is one of our volunteer interns. Alyson’s father, a defense attorney, inspired her to pursue a career in law. CIP benefits greatly from the dedicated sacrifice of our interns like Alyson - we’re thankful for their selfless work. #ThisIsWhoWeAre #XONR8

Accused of a murder she did not commit, Kim found out about the @CA_Innocence through her Mom. Their dedication to proving her innocence was rewarded when CIP took Kim's case & fought to have her conviction overturned in 2016. #ThisIsWhoWeAre Learn more: https://buff.ly/2nbBNYN

The wrongfully convicted have already suffered injustice once, not compensating them makes them suffer yet another injustice. It's time to do the right thing. Click this link to see how you can support compensation for exonerees right now: https://buff.ly/2s3BeE8 #SupportSB1094

RT @Catherineboyle1: Hey CA friends, please help with SB 1094! Many don't realize how hard it is for the wrongfully convicted to get compensation for their lost years after they are freed. Currently, to get compensation, exonerees need to go through another litigation to prove that they are innocent https://buff.ly/2IJyYvS
