Poker Run and Benefit Concert for the “Beatrice 6”
The Nebraska Innocence Project will be in Omaha again on Saturday, September 19th to host a fundraiser for the “Beatrice 6.” This case served as a wake-up call to many Nebraskans after DNA evidence exonerated six individuals in a 1986 murder case. Collectively these individuals spent more than 70 years in prison before being pardoned by the Governor and Attorney General earlier this year. This case is a chilling example of what can go wrong in the Nebraska justice system; many of these individuals were persuaded to provide false confessions in order to save themselves from the electric chair. NADP encourages you to come out for this meaningful day of entertainment!
