“The Exonerated” on the UF Law campus
Members of the Gainesville Community Playhouse, including UF Law Senior Legal Skills Professor Patricia Thomson, at left, performed “The Exonerated” on the UF Law campus Nov. 6.
The play employed a versatile cast to tell the stories of six people wrongfully convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death; two of them were convicted and sentenced in Florida.
The people chronicled in the play eventually were exonerated and got out of prison, but only after substantial prison time on death row.
UF Law Senior Legal Skills Professor Henry Winhyk (not pictured) also performed in the production. The performance was free and was performed as a special event for the law school.
