The Case of Lorenzo Johnson

LORENZo Johnson CONTInUES TO FIGHT FOR HIS FREEDOM

Deskovic Foundation client Lorenzo Johnson was released after 16 1/2 years in prison on January 28, 2012 when a federal court ruled that the evidence to convict him had been insufficient – tantamount to a not guilty verdict.

The Foundation continues to fight for Lorenzo’s release.
