Fernando Bermudez and the Innocence Project

No, "Fernando Bermudez and the Innocence Project" will not be playing at Eclectic.

It’s not often we get to hear from a prisoner hirself. At least, for those of us who don’t avidly watch Beyond Scared Straight (an aside: “this approach has been shown to cause short- and long- term harm and actually increases the likelihood of re-offending among some participants,” including one from the original series, who is now a convicted felon, if Wikipedia is to be believed. Oh my.). Even less often do we hear from a prisoner who served time for a crime he didn’t commit (no, I didn’t say team of prisoners).

Tomorrow, at 7pm in the Daniel Family Commons (3rd floor of Usdan), we have just such an opportunity.
