Former Inmate, Wrongfully Convicted of Crime, to Speak at RVCC
Rodney Roberts, a former inmate who spent 18 years in prison for a crime he did not commit, will share his story on Monday, October 22, from 5-7 p.m., at Raritan Valley Community College.
The event, which is being sponsored by the College’s Business and Public Service Department, will be held in the Conference Center (Rooms A & B) at RVCC’s Branchburg campus. The program is free of charge and open to the public.
In 1996 Roberts’ life changed forever when he was arrested and wrongfully convicted of a crime. After years of fighting the system, he was finally exonerated and released from prison in 2014. He had spent 18 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.
No advance registration is required for the event. For additional information or questions, contact Professor Brian Donnelly of RVCC’s Criminal Justice Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
