Georgia Innocence Project
Last night, Atlanta Hawks head coach Lloyd Pierce graciously hosted Georgia Innocence Project, exonerees and supporters (including NBA All Star Joe Barry Carroll) at the WNBA Atlanta Dream game. Here is Coach Pierce with several exonerees who spent a combined total of 142 years wrongfully imprisoned on crimes they did not commit. THANK YOU Coach Pierce for this wonderful opportunity and for helping to raise awareness about wrongful convictions.
