DESHAWN & MARVIN REEDWrongfully convicted in 2001 for shooting a man in Ecorse, MI, Marvin and Deshawn were the first two clients exonerated by the Michigan Innocence Clinic. After granting an evidentiary hearing based on the Clinic’s presentation of new evidence in the case, Wayne County Circuit Judge Patricia Fresard wrote the opinion overturning the Reeds' conviction in July 2009. The Wayne County Prosecutor did not appeal Judge Fresard's decision and did not attempt to retry the Reeds.
