In this episode, Innocence Litigator/Law Professor/Author Valeena Beety discusses her personal journey towards where she is at today. She uncovers the truth about wrongful convictions, how common they are in the LGBTQIA community, and how much that specific community is targeted.
Valena Elizabeth Beety is an innocence litigator, a law professor, and a former federal prosecutor. Beety served as the Founding Director of the West Virginia Innocence Project. She has successfully exonerated wrongfully convicted clients, obtained presidential grants of clemency for drug offenses, and served as an elected board member of the national Innocence Network. Her experiences as a federal prosecutor in Washington, D.C., and as an innocence litigator in Mississippi and West Virginia, shape her research and writing on wrongful convictions, forensic evidence, prosecution, and incarceration. She is the co-editor of The Wrongful Convictions Reader, and author of the award-winning book Manifesting Justice: Wrongly Convicted Women Reclaim Their Rights.
