Guilty Until Proven Innocent: A Conversation with Richard Miles

The conversation will take place on the online platform Zoom. A link to join will be sent to registered guests via email the day of the program.
In 1995, at the age of 20, Richard Miles was convicted of a murder he did not commit. He spent 15 years in prison before he was finally released, and he fought for another two and a half years before he was declared “truly” innocent and his conviction was reversed. Miles took his experiences and channeled them into founding Miles of Freedom, an organization that equips, empowers, and employs individuals returning home from prison and provides support for families and communities impacted by incarceration.

Richard Miles will be joined by Gary Udashen, a criminal appellate specialist and president of The Innocence Project of Texas, for a conversation about wrongful conviction and the path to justice.

This program is part of the Museum's Permanent Exhibition Highlight Series.
