    Jarrett Adams

    Co-Founder, Life After Justice

    Jarrett Adams is the co-founder of Life After Justice, an organization the helps exonerees and parolees re-enter society. Adams is also a law student at Loyola University Chicago, a journey he started after he was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to 28 years in prison at the age of 17. After serving nearly 10 years of his sentence, the Wisconsin Innocence Project at the University of Wisconsin Law School successfully argued his case before the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. The Seventh Circuit ultimately vacated Adam’s conviction, and the State of Wisconsin dismissed all charges. Adams has turned this mess into a message and become an advocate for the exonerated by voicing and bringing attention to the continued injustice the wrongly convicted face post-release.
