Watercolor on paper
10" x 8"

Former death row inmate Ricky Jackson was exonerated in Ohio, after spending 39 years in prison. A judge in Cleveland dismissed all charges against Jackson, with the prosecution in agreement. Jackson was convicted of the 1975 murder of Harold Franks.

He was convicted on the testimony of a 12-year-old boy, whom several people confirmed was on a school bus at the time of the crime, who later said he did not witness the crime at all.
