In this, our May monthly video update, Seth Miller reports on the recently-ended Florida legislative session and our upcoming gala celebration on June 4th with Danny Glover. The update is summarized in more detail below.
Legislative Session Ended: The Bad & The Good
The Bad: While the Florida Senate passed Witness Identification Reform Bill, the Florida House of Representatives failed to take up and pass this important legislation.
The Good: The Florida Innocence Commission was funded. The Commission will continue its work investigating the causes of wrongful convictions and making recommendations to prevent future ones.
