OIP-u 3rd Annual Speaker Tour
April 9, 2018 9:00am - April 12, 2018 6:00pm
The OIP-u team will tour Ohio’s universities with Yusekf Salaam of the Central Park jogger case. Mr. salaam served 5.5 years in prison when he was wrongfully convicted in the famous case. On December 19, 2002 , after another man was implicated in the crime buy newly tested DNA evidence, the convictions of Salaam and four other men were overturned. The case is notable for raising concerns about police coercion and false confessions, particularly with respect to vulnerable juveniles, during police interrogations.
