January 29, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
This session of the POLI 203 Speaker Series, organized by Frank R. Baumgartner, will feature Kirk Bloodsworth.
Mr. Bloodsworth, an honorably discharged U.S. Marine, was wrongfully convicted of killing a young girl and sentenced to death in the state of Maryland. He was the first person in the U.S. to be exonerated from death row based on DNA testing. He is now the Executive Director of Witness to Innocence, an organization that supports exonerees from death row and brings attention to the issue of innocence.
