The Michigan Lawyers Chapter of the American Constitution Society presented a powerful program on wrongful convictions to UDM Law students.

Thomas Highers, who with his brother, Raymond, spent 25 years in prison for a murder they did not commit, appeared with his attorney, Valerie Newman, to tell the story of their case.  The brothers were released last summer when a Wayne County Circuit Court judge granted them a new trial due to overwhelming evidence of their innocence and mistaken witness identifications.

The presentation was powerfully poignant in showing the human side of lawyering.  Mr. Highers showed profound gratitude for his lawyer's efforts and did not appear bitter about the painful experience.  The students were rapt in attention throughout his compelling story.  Event Photo >>
