From Exoneration to Activism: Jeffrey Deskovic Speaks Out
Jeffrey Deskovic spent 16 years in prison based on faulty evidence against him. With a new district attorney in place, The Innocence Project picked up his case in 2005 and was able to obtain DNA from the original crime scene; the prior DA had refused requests to run the tests. The evidence not only proved Deskovic’s innocence, it also located the real perpetrator. Lynne Glasner spoke to Deskovic about his activism and why he’s chosen to support Aborn for Manhattan DA.
