DAVIS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 21, 2019 / Keynote speaker Jeffrey Deskovic will address the attendees of the upcoming Davis Vanguard's Annual Fundraiser, Reforming the Prosecution System, regarding the justice system and wrongfully convicted individuals such as International Fashion Designer Anand Jon Alexander.
Jeffrey Deskovic, alongside other speakers such as Satana Deberry ( Durham, N.C top prosecutor), Genevieve Jones-Wright, Noah Phillips (former prosecutor in Sacramento) , and Lisa Rea ( President of Restorative Justice International, will discuss the implications of the prosecution system on those who are wrongfully convicted, while highlighting cases.
While some of the falsely accused and wrongfully convicted individuals Like Brian Banks, Jack Sagin and Obie Anthony have started to receive long overdue justice,fellow exoneree turned activist Jeffrey Deskovic states how others with evidence of factual innocence need to be granted relief: "Anand Jon's case is fraught with prosecutorial misconduct and bad lawyering. It is no wonder he was wrongfully convicted."
