Exoneree releases new book about his wrongful conviction

Western Michigan University Cooley Law School Innocence Project exoneree Kenneth Wyniemko and author Bob Henige will hold a public reception and media briefing at noon on Monday, Oct. 9, on Cooley’s Auburn Hills campus to introduce their book “Deliberate Injustice.” The book takes a personal look into Wyniemko’s struggles to prove his innocence, and life after being exonerated.

On June 17, 2003, Kenneth Wyniemko walked out of prison a free man after Macomb County prosecutors dismissed all charges against him. He had spent nine years in prison for crimes he didn’t commit. DNA testing obtained by the WMU-Cooley Innocence Project and pro bono attorney Gail Pamukov led to Wyniemko’s exoneration. The true perpetrator was identified through a DNA data bank hit five years after Wyniemko was exonerated.

Today, Wyniemko is spokesperson and advocate for criminal justice reform.
