Many people are convicted for crimes they did not commit or wrongfully charged and eligible for a reduction in legal penalties. These people need representation to pursue a reduction in charges. For Mary Virginia Jones, freedom came through the Post-Conviction Justice Project, a group of law students from the University of Southern California.
Jones’ new lease on life can inspire Floridians whose loved ones are still behind bars. The Sunshine State has had its fair share of wrongful convictions that were successfully overturned after new evidence was discovered. For families who are undergoing this problem, a trusted Fort Lauderdale criminal attorney like Richard Della Fera can help them and their loved ones modify their sentence, seek a reduction in charges or appeal a conviction and get out of prison.
