Exoneree, Life After Innocence client begins law school at Loyola

Jarrett Adams has a history unlike most of the law students he is in school with at Loyola University Chicago School of Law.

At the age of 17, Adams was handed a 28-year sentence in a Wisconsin prison for a sexual assault that he did not commit. After serving almost nine years, Adams was exonerated of his conviction and released from prison. Adams wasted no time regaining his life. He began working several jobs to raise money for college, and successfully graduated from Roosevelt University with a 3.9 grade point average.

In addition to working as a full-time investigator for the Federal Defender Program, Jarrett has begun his journey into law school.

Congratulations, Jarrett!
