Derrick Hamilton A Free Man 24 Years After a Wrongful Conviction

Derrick Hamilton a Free Man 24 Years After a Wrongful Conviction

Mr. Hamilton is a quintessential example of why VICE recruits erudite convicted felons for our book club’s Not Guilty Program! In this case, Mr. Hamilton’s own exhaustive legal research facilitated his exoneration for a murder he did not commit in 1991. Kudos to you, Sir, for your tenacity and relentless challenge to a legal system fraught with crime and corruption on both sides of the badge.

“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience”     [Colossians 3:1-6]
