After 7 years innocent behind bars: WISCONSIN EXONEREE WINS LAW SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIP!

Wisconsin Exoneree Wins Law School Scholarship

Wisconsin exoneree Jarrett Adams has been awarded the Chicago Bar Foundation’s Marovitz Public Interest Scholarship to attend law school.

Adams spent seven years behind bars for a sexual assault he didn’t commit before being released from prison in 2007 with the help of the Wisconsin Innocence Project.

Adams is the second Wisconsin Innocence Project client to pursue a law degree. Chris Ochoa, the first prisoner ever to be exonerated by the WIP, received his degree from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 2006.
