    To Mr. Garber and all the attorneys who worked on this case, Thank you. You are a credit to the profession and a blessing not only to your client but to all of us involved in trying to get justice for wrongly convicted men and women. I volunteer in a prison (the inmates do not know I am an attorney), and I know of several wrongly convicted inmates. In one case, the Second Circuit declared no reasonable jury could have convicted, but the inmate died in prison after 24 years. I can only hope and pray that the light shed by your work will enable at least some prosecutors to see more clearly and inspire more lawyers to take on pro bono efforts on behalf of valid cases and, where that is not possible, to contribute to organizations such as The Exoneration Initiative.
