Jury returns $41.6 million award to Jeffrey Deskovic for his wrongful conviction. Holy Cow!
All I can say is “WOW”!!!
Great news for Jeff Deskovic! It couldn’t go to a more deserving person. It was great to see and hear him speak recently at the Innocence Summit, Washington DC, June 2014. His list of accomplishments is over 60 pages. What a difference Jeff has made will continue to make.
In 2009, New York City, Jeff was the featured speaker in our first Freedom March for the Wrongfully Convicted – a grassroots national innocence movement. He took the time to be there, and made the event a success. http://FreedomMarchUSA.org
It is truly a great day when Justice prevails!
Once prosecutors, who deal with lives daily – the destruction of lives, no less – have to face the same consequences they want for a doctor, when there is malfeasance or wrongful deaths, then these wrongful convictions would evaporate, along with all the money. Prosecutors should be charged with a felony and face prison time for the wrongful conviction of an innocent man, woman or child. Unequal standards = unequal justice.
