With more than 46 years of working in criminal justice, which includes over 29 years in active law enforcement and over 17 years in private practice as an expert, I have had the opportunity to provide expert analysis that lead to the fiscal settlements in the notable cases of the Englewood Four out of Chicago, Illinois, and Kash D. Register out of Los Angeles, California, who were wrongfully convicted.

It is both my profession and passion to assist in the exoneration of wrongfully convicted persons. A majority of wrongful conviction cases do not have DNA evidence and it can sometimes take years, even decades, to prove the innocence of a wrongfully convicted person. However, most legal personnel cannot afford to work pro bono long term and most convicted persons seeking exoneration cannot afford legal representation. Per Santa Clara University of Law, some cases can cost more than $2 million and an estimated 5,000 attorney hours or more to win the freedom of a wrongfully convicted person.

On this anniversary of International #WrongfulConvictionDay, I am proud to announce the launch of the Timothy T. Williams, Jr. Foundation for Wrongful Convictions (TTWFWC) to address such disparities in the legal system. We are committed to making history by providing attorneys, experts, and criminal investigators with grant funding that embraces their prevailing industry rates to work as teams on state and federal wrongful conviction cases nationwide. Learn more about us and make a gift to save a life at www.ttwfwc.org.
