Bearing Witness Series Presents: "After Innocence"
Bearing Witness Series Presents: "After Innocence"

Start Date: Oct. 28, 2012
Time: 6:00 PM

30 W. North St., Waynesboro, Pa Trinity United Church of Christ is excited to announce the return of the four-part series, Bearing Witness! These events are free and open to the public! The Bearing Witness program will be in Harbaugh Hall, and begins with a light meal at 6:00 P.M., followed by a viewing of the documentary, "After Innocence," at 7:00 P.M. The nursery will be available at 7:00 P.M. This event is free and open to the public. “After Innocence” tells the compelling story of the exonerated - innocent men wrongfully convicted and then imprisoned for decades who were released after proving their innocence using DNA evidence. The film focuses on the gripping story of seven men and their emotional journeys back into society and their efforts to rebuild their lives. Included are a police officer, an army sergeant and a young father who are sent to prison, and even death row, for decades for crimes they did not commit. The men are thrust back into society with little or no support from the system that put them behind bars. In addition to the obvious horrors of wrongful conviction, the film exposes absurd results - that services which are available to parolees are not available to these innocent men and that the system does not erase their erroneous criminal records. While the public views exonerations as success stories - wrongs that have been righted - “After Innocence” shows that the human toll of wrongful imprisonment can last far longer than the sentences served. The film raises basic questions about human rights and society's moral obligation to the innocent. It places a spotlight on the flaws in our criminal justice system that lead to wrongful conviction of the innocent. To further highlight the damages done to these exonerated individuals is the absurd realization that their records are never cleared, despite their proven innocence.
