Andrew Johnson the Story of a Rocky Mountain Innocence Center Exoneree, plus Decarcerate Utah
Rocky Mountain Innocence Center has begun a campaign to educate the citizenry of Wyoming and the Rocky Mountain states about Andrew Johnson, a Wyoming citizen proved innocent after serving 24 years in prison with a mini-documentary. While Johnson has been released he has not been compensated for his wrongful conviction. For many years, Rocky Mountain Innocence Center and other legal reformers have attempted to pass Wyoming legislation to compensate the wrongfully convicted for the incredible injustice they have endured. Wyoming is one of only 15 states that has not passed this kind of important legislation.
