Wrongful Convictions and the U.S. Constitution

 

Please join us for a special discussion of the persistent problem of wrongful convictions focusing on the 5th Amendement with Ms. Sabrina Smith, death penalty exoneree and Professor Kim Cook.

Sponsored by the UNCW Honors College and the Departments of Criminology and Sociology and Communications Studies                  

Sabrina Butler-Smith was a Mississippi teenager wrongfully convicted of murder and child abuse in the death of her nine-month-old son, Walter. After 5 years in prison and 33 months on death row Ms. Smith was exonerated of all wrongdoing. She is one of only two women in the United States exonerated from death row.

Ms. Smith lives in Memphis is blessed with three thriving children, and serves on the Witness To Innocence board. She speaks as often as she can to the public and media about her story, and has recently published a memoir, The Sabrina Butler Story. You can order a copy of Sabrina's book here: sabrinabutler.webs.com
