Madison, Wis. (October 16, 2013) – Have you ever wondered how an innocent person gets convicted of a crime, and even sentenced to death? It happened to Ray Krone in Arizona in the 1990s.
Mr. Krone will speak about his experiences with the criminal justice system in “DNA Saved My Life: An Exoneration Story.”
This compelling event will take place at 7:00 pm, Tuesday, October 22nd in Anderson Auditorium.
Ray Krone was originally sentenced to death in 1992 for homicide. He was granted a new trial in 1994, convicted once again, and re-sentenced to 46 years in prison. Finally in 2002, through the use of DNA evidence, he was able to prove his actual innocence and was released after spending 10 years and 4 months in the Arizona prison system.
This presentation is free of charge and open to the public. Donations to the Criminal Justice Association at Edgewood College will be gratefully accepted.
This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Social Science, the School of Integrative Studies, the Religious Studies Department, the Chemistry, Geoscience, and Physics Department, and the Criminal Justice Association at Edgewood College.
