Over the weekend, we celebrated a bunch of exoneration anniversaries.

Cecilia Guevara and Victoria Gauthier celebrated their exoneration anniversaries on the 15th.  Both women were exonerated in Texas last year. Happy belated exoneration anniversary, Cecilia and Victoria!

Several exonerees celebrated their exoneration anniversaries on the 17th.

Vincent Thames, Terrill Swift, Harold Richardson, and Michael Saunders, who were all convicted for the same crime, were exonerated in Illinois in 2012. Vincent was represented by the Valorem Law Group, Terrill was represented by the Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth, Harold was represented by the Exoneration Project of the University of Chicago Law School, and Michael was represented by the Innocence Project.

Happy belated exoneration anniversary, gentlemen!
