Wrongful Conviction Archives -

VSCP LAW’s Joshua Van Naarden and Julia Huxman Ronnebaum are proud to represent Willie Stokes, Pennsylvania’s longest ever incarcerated exoneree. Willie spent 37 YEARS in prison for a homicide he did not commit. VSCP LAW will be filing Willie’s Civil Right’s claim against the City and the individuals responsible for this gross, life-altering miscarriage of justice.
