Robert A. Harvie Social Justice Lecture

October 3, 2008

On October 3, 2008 the inaugural 2008-09 Robert A. Harvie Social Justice Lecture featured Juan Roberto Melendez, the 99th person to be released from a U.S. death sentence after evidence of exoneration. Juan spoke movingly about the pain of imprisonment for nearly 18 years on Florida's death row and about watching his fellow death row prisoners die - through suicide, unattended heart attacks, and, finally, execution.
