It looks like a great musical lineup. And you probably won't find that many DNA-exonerated men in the same room in many other settings; that alone deserves commemoration. Consider attending if you're in the Dallas area or donate online as part of their Justice Delayed fundraising campaign.The Innocence Project of Texas invites you to attend the 2007 DNA Blues Ball, an evening of music and enlightenment to benefit the wrongfully convicted.Since 2001, 13 men have been exonerated in Dallas County after DNA testing conclusively proved their innocence. The proceeds of DNA Blues Ball ticket and merchandise sales will directly support the efforts of the Innocence Project of Texas in our mission to seek justice for those who have lost their freedom at the hands of wrongful convictions.
Chief Counsel for the Innocence Project of Texas is a long-time friend of the blog and crackerjack Amarillo-based attorney, Jeff Blackburn, who also was the lead barrister representing the ultimately freed and pardoned clients in the notorious "Tulia" drug stings.
