Curry College Innocence Panel 2013 presents: "West Memphis Three" Member Damien Echols
April 8, 2013
Damien Echols is now a free man after spending 18 years on Arkansas' death row for a crime he said he did not commit.
Echols and his wife Lorri Davis will share the remarkable account of their fight to prove his innocence as part of "The Innocence Panel," to be held on Monday, April 8 at 7:00 p.m. in the Keith Auditorium.
At the age of 18, Echols and two other teens, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley, Jr. were convicted of murdering three young boys. In 2011, all three were released after reaching an agreement known as an Alford plea - which allowed them to assert their innocence while acknowledging that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict them.
Since their release, "The West Memphis Three" have been the subject of Paradise Lost, a three-part documentary series produced by HBO, and West of Memphis, a documentary produced by Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh.
Echols also self-published his first memoir entitled Almost Home.
The event is free and open to the public.
