Come Celebrate!

Please join us as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of Dennis Maher's exoneration! In 1983, Dennis, a former sergeant in the U.S. Army, was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Dennis was exonerated based on DNA evidence and freed in April 2003 after spending 19 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Dennis is now happily married with two beautiful children, works full-time to support his family, and shares his story to help raise awareness of wrongful convictions. His daughter Aliza is named after the attorney who worked to win his freedom. All proceeds will benefit the New England Innocence Project and the Children's Glaucoma Foundation.
