"Innocently Incarcerated: When Truth Is All You Have”: A Conversation with Centurion’s Jim McCloskey, hosted by David W. Miller

March 24, 2023

On Tuesday April 11, Prof. David W. Miller will host a conversation with Jim McCloskey of Centurion (centurion.org), who, since 1983, has helped exonerate sixty-seven men and women who were serving life or death sentences for crimes they did not commit. “We take on the hard cases,” he says, “those that have no DNA available to prove our clients’ innocence. We re-investigate the crime, uncovering lost evidence, finding new evidence, convincing coerced witnesses to come forward with the truth, and overturning false confessions. Please join us in our fight for justice.”

Miller and McCloskey will have a “fireside chat,” after which SPIA professor and founder of the Policy Advocacy Clinic Udi Ofer and two student discussants from the clinic will connect the conversation with their work. Join us for lunch and a conversation beginning at 12:15 in Robertson 016. Cosponsored by SPIA, the Policy Advocacy Project, and the Princeton University Faith & Work Initiative. For questions or to RSVP, please contact Susan Richardson, Manager of Communications and Operations, Faith & Work Initiative.
