Monday, April 1 marked the first annual fundraiser at Aidan’s Pub in Bristol, Rhode Island to benefit the New England Innocence Project. We want to thank everyone who helped us to make the fundraiser such a big success! Betty Anne Waters spoke about her efforts to clear her brother Kenny’s name and secure his freedom. In an emotional talk, Dennis Maher spoke about the 19 years he spent in prison for a crime he did not commit before being cleared by DNA evidence. April 1, the date of the fundraiser, was the 10-year anniversary of when Dennis received the call from his attorney telling him that he would be going home.
We want to thank the law students at Roger Williams University Law School who helped to make the event a reality. The night was a huge success that we hope to make an annual tradition!
