Important Update on Samuel Flippen
The Innocence Project at NCCU Law is an organization that allows students to investigate North Carolina inmates claims of innocence. It is a great opportunity for law students to learn and gain experience while assisting inmates who haven't the resources to help themselves. We acquire client files through the N.C. Center on Actual Innocence, and with the help of attorneys and professors, determine the options for the clients who have claims of actual innocence.
Success to Freedom is an organization set up by Carl King to aid in exonerating wrongfully convicted inmates in New York. King started by freeing his friend Colin Warner. Colin Warner spent 21 years behind bars for the murder of Mario Hamilton. Carl King eventually managed to convice the real shooter and the victim's brother to testify on Colin's behalf. The actual shooter was offered a plea, and based on how he decided, Colin would or would not be set free. Colin's freedom depended on the outcome of this plea of an 18 year old.
