Ep. 88: From Being Wrongly Convicted to Becoming a Lawyer (Part 2)
In this pod we discuss Jeffrey’s life after prison.
Exonerated after 16 years in prison for a rape and murder he did not commit, Jeffrey Deskovic is the
Founder and President of The Jeffrey Deskovic Foundation. An Advocate for wrongful conviction prevention.
In October of 2020,, Jeff received his Law Degree, and is helping many.
“In the short time Jeffrey has been free, he has had a huge impact nationally on the dialogue about the death penalty and wrongful convictions. It amazes me how he emerged from wrongful imprisonment highly educated, well read and extremely articulate. Given the limited resources he was offered while incarcerated, his education was largely self-motivated and continues to this day.” – Laura Porter, Director of Organizing, Equal Justice USA (June 2009)
