“A Night for the Innocent 2014” – Tickets still available!

On Friday, September 26, 2014, Oklahoma City University School of Law is hosting “A Night for the Innocent 2014” in support of the school’s Oklahoma Innocence Project (OIP). Launched in August 2011, OIP is “dedicated to identifying and remedying cases of wrongful convictions in Oklahoma.” (http://innocence.okcu.edu/).

OIP only pursues “cases in which there is credible evidence of factual innocence” (id.), and it has received more than 1,000 requests. Project staff and law students in the clinic are investigating more than a dozen of those requests, while two are in active litigation.

OIP is funded solely by private donors, and proceeds from “A Night for the Innocent 2014” will add to the project’s resources. The event, located at Will Rogers Theater, will feature a silent auction, food, and drinks. The band Exoneree, which is composed of exonerated musicians, will also be performing. In addition, Jennifer Thompson and Ronald Cotton will be honored as OIP’s 2014 Beacon of Justice recipients. For additional background information about the fundraiser and OIP’s work, see Drumming up justice: Oklahoma Innocence Project seeks funds to help wrongfully convicted.

Tickets for “A Night for the Innocent 2014” are $100 each and are only available for a few more days. Tickets can be purchased at LAW.OKCU.EDU or by calling 405-208-7101. To learn more information about the Oklahoma Innocence Project and their current cases, go to innocence.okcu.edu.
