Carl Dukes' First Speaking Engagement on his Wrongful Conviction

  • St. Francis College, Room 4202 180 Remsen Street Brooklyn, NY, 11201 United States (map)

Carl Dukes, wrongfully convicted of murder will speak at SFC along with Professor and attorney Don Savatta.

SFC professor and attorney Don Savatta will discuss his work securing the exoneration of Carl Dukes in July 2016. Dukes spent almost 20 years in prison after being wrongfully convicted of murdering a 23-year-old student at the University of Albany in 1997. In July, he had his conviction vacated, with the help of Professor Savatta. Dukes will join Savatta and describe his experience serving almost two decades in prison for a crime he did not commit. This is the first time that Dukes has spoken publicly to an audience about this case. Dukes was exonerated after another man confessed to killing the student; Savatta will play a clip of the confession.
