POLI 203 Speakers Series: Jimmie Dennis

March 2, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

This session of the POLI 203 Speaker Series, organized by Frank R. Baumgartner, will feature Jimmie Dennis.

Mr. Dennis served over 25 years on Pennsylvania’s death row for a crime he did not commit. Two federal legal decisions exonerated him; prosecutors finally offered a deal and, after negotiations, all words relating to guilt were removed, his innocence was read into the court record and he accepted a no-contest plea to third-degree murder so that he could leave prison immediately to see his ailing mother.
