He helped obtain the exonerations of Lawrence Fowler, Eric Glisson, and Glisson's four co-defendants. Forcelli is now advocating for Edward Garry, whom Forcelli personally helped convict 20 years ago as a Bronx detective. He has also exposed government wrongdoing, often at great personal and professional expense. (Photo: Mike Stocker / Sun Sentinel)
