Exonerated Prisoner to Read from His Memoir

SEATTLE - Dennis Fritz, who spent almost 12 years behind bars for a crime he did not commit, will be reading from his memoir, Journey to Justice, on Monday, December 4 at the University of Washington School of Law Room 138 at 6:30 p.m.  This event, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Innocence Project Northwest. 

Innocence Project Northwest (IPNW) was formed in 1997 as non-profit group of attorneys, professors, and students working to free innocent prisoners. The work of the organization is carried out by the IPNW Clinic at the UW School of Law. Most recently, the work of the IPNW Clinic led to the reversal of a felony conviction for a Yakima man based on DNA evidence not available at the time of conviction, a first in Washington State.
