Innocence Project of Minnesota "Benefit for Innocence" (Sponsored by Maslon)

October 11, 2012

Maslon is pleased to sponsor the Innocence Project of Minnesota (IPMN) "Benefit for Innocence" on October 11, 2012. The mission of the IPMN is to keep innocent people from being convicted and to free people imprisoned for crimes they didn't commit. As part of this, the IPMN provides pro bono investigative and legal assistance to prisoners trying to prove their innocence and investigates potential claims of wrongful conviction from prisoners convicted of crimes in Minnesota. Maslon attorney David Schultz served on the Board of the Innocence Project of Minnesota for six years, was Chair in 2007 and has represented numerous defendants on death row.

This year's benefit features Damien Echols who was sentenced to death along with two other men, for the brutal murder of three eight-year-old boys in West Memphis, Arkansas. After serving 18 years and 78 days in prison, "The West Memphis Three," as they had come to be called, were released following a grueling legal battle in which new DNA evidence in the case came to light. Mr. Echols has written a book titled "Life After Death" about his experience with the justice system and his time on death row, which was released in September 2012. In addition to Mr. Echols' presentation, the program includes cocktails, a silent auction, and dinner.
