Wed Nov 8 2006 (Updated 11/17/06) Former Prisoners to Speak at Film Screening About Men Freed by DNA Evidence
On Sunday November 19th, there will be a benefit for exonerated former prisoners at 4:00pm at the Marin Academy Theatre, 1600 Mission Ave. in San Rafael. Pam Maffei's Justice in America class will show the film "After Innocence," and several exonerees will be present. After the movie, the students will serve dinner in the cafeteria in honor of our visiting exonerees.

"After Innocence" tells the story of the exonerated -- innocent men who were wrongfully imprisoned for decades and then released after DNA evidence proved their innocence. The film focuses on the stories of seven men and their emotional journeys back into society and efforts to rebuild their lives. Included are a police officer, an army sergeant, and a young father sent to prison and even death row for decades for crimes they did not commit.

Tickets for the movie and dinner are $10 and can be purchased at the Marin Academy Website. Proceeds will go toward the Life After Exoneration Program and to the speakers.
