Day 11 of the Innocence March

innocencemarch.milesToday is Day 11 of the California Innocence Project’s 660 mile march from San Diego to Sacramento to ask Governor Jerry Brown to give clemency to 12 of our innocent clients.  Mike Semanchik, Alissa Bjerkhoel, and I have walked 152 miles so far…many more miles to go.  From the RV where I am sleeping at night, I wrote the following blog about 3 of our cases and the first week of our journey.
