Victory for University of Washington's Innocence Project Northwest
University of Washington Law School Associate Dean Lisa Kelly has announced:
"A wonderful story ran in the Seattle Times yesterday and on the front page of the Seattle PI today about IPNW’s successful effort to secure the release of James S. Anderson who has spent five years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Now, only the snow is keeping him from his family in Los Angeles. Jackie McMurtrie and former students, Boris Reznikov and Christopher R. Carney, worked tirelessly to prove that James S. Anderson was in Los Angeles when the armed robbery for which he was convicted took place. Congratulations for the truly heroic work that the IPNW clinic does. I am sure that this is the best gift that James Anderson will ever receive."
