OIP forum featuring Roger Gillispie & Jim Petro

January 26, 2012 4:30pm - January 26, 2012 6:00pm
Room 114


Roger Dean Gillispie, the OIP's latest client to have his conviction overturned and be released from prison, will be speaking at the College of Law. He will be joined by former Attorney General of Ohio Jim Petro, who was co-counsel on Gillispie's case, as well as Nancy Petro, who co-authored with Jim a book that features Gillispie's case. The conviction was overturned on December 22, 2011, after the OIP investigated and litigated the case for nearly nine years. Gillispie spent 20 years in prison for a rape before finally prevailing.
