Just a quick post about the generosity we sometimes see from the public after exonerations. As I previously posted, after Ohio Innocence Project client Ricky Jackson, was exonerated, strangers from around the world came together to raise nearly 60k for Ricky to help him start his new life.
More recently, the good folks at the Cleveland Eye Clinic contacted me out of the blue and offered free eye services—lasik surgery, glasses, contacts, etc.–to Ricky and his two exonerated co-defendants, Wiley Bridgeman and Kwami Ajamu. They didn’t ask for anything in return, but I wanted to give them a shout-out here for stepping up and helping out some good guys in need. Kudos. We need more like them.
