Wrongfully Behind Bars.

This is an illustration for Anthony Grave's plight. Anthony Graves was wrongly convicted of killing 5 family members in 1994, and was kept on death row for 18 years. In letters he wrote during his time on death row he said he felt like a caged animal, and felt completely dehumanized. Anthony Graves was exonerated in 2010, however it could have been a different story, and he could have easily been murdered by America. For my project I am looking at the plight of men wrongly convicted and put on death row, and I want to illustrate the need to abolish execution. Execution should have been abolished the moment the first person was who was killed was found innocent.
