Evin King's Exoneration Fund
In 1995, the unimaginable happened to Evin King. Despite the fact that no forensic or eyewitness evidence linked him to the crime, Evin was sentenced to 15 years to life for the murder of his girlfriend. For 23 years Evin maintained his innocence and fought for his freedom. Finally, with the help of Ohio Innocence Project attorney, Jennifer Bergeron, and several University of Cincinnati law students, Evin's conviction was vacated.
On April 19, 2017, after 23 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit, Evin King became a free man.
Evin's struggle doesn't stop there. Now begins the uphill battle to piece together his life after a 23 year nightmare. Imagine all of the advances of the last 23 years - Evin has to learn them all. Imagine all of the relationships that are built over two decades - Evin must rebuild them. What's more, Evin reenters society with absolutely nothing. He will need clothing, food, personal items, healthcare, housing, transportation, and a host of other necessities that he would've accumulated had he not been wrongfully imprisoned.
That's where you come in. Please consider donating to help Evin start all over again. Your donations will be given directly to Evin to help him rebuild his life.
