Happy exoneration anniversary to Damon Thibodeaux.

Damon was 22 years old when he was wrongfully convicted of the murder of his step-cousin in Lousiana. He spent 15 years on death row, in solitary confinement, before his exoneration through DNA testing on September 28th, 2012 with the help of the Jefferson Parish District Attorney’s Office and the Innocence Project.

Following his release, Damon moved to Minnesota and works for Fredrikson & Byron, the law firm that helped facilitate his exoneration. He remains an active speak for wrongful conviction and criminal justice reform.
