The Fight for Freedom: How to liberate wrongfully convicted people

"The best thing a lawyer can do with their license is get an innocent guy out of prison"

How do you liberate a man who’s spent nearly 20 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit? Recently featured in the new Netflix series, the Innocence Files, Franky Carrillo was exonerated with the help of a team of lawyers, judges, and activists. His case shows the importance of perseverance and hope in the face of a cruel and racially-biased criminal justice system. Join ChangeLawyers for a virtual fireside chat with Frankie Carrillo, Judge Paul Bacigalupo, Juan Mejia from the District Attorney's Office, and Paige Kaneb from the Northern California Innocence Project.


California ChangeLawyers (formerly California Bar Foundation) is a statewide foundation that empowers the next generation of lawyers, judges, & activists.
