2nd Annual OKIP Wrongful Conviction Day Fish Fry
Oct
7
4:00 PM16:00

2nd Annual OKIP Wrongful Conviction Day Fish Fry

Saint’s Bar and Lounge is hosting a fish fry to raise money for the Oklahoma Innocence Project (OKIP) at Oklahoma City University School of Law. The OKIP is a non-profit organization that helps wrongfully convicted Oklahomans regain their freedom. The Project operates on private donations and we offer legal services to our clients free of charge.

For your show of support, with $27.50, you will receive one (1) food ticket, two (2) drink tickets, and one (1) free raffle ticket. Additional raffle tickets will be available for sale. There will be a number of local bands providing live entertainment during the event and all proceeds benefit the OKIP.

OKIP had its first exonerations in May 2016, when a Tulsa County Judge found Malcolm Scott and De'Marchoe Carpenter actually innocent and set them free. The pair had been in prison for 22 years, having been wrongfully convicted of murder in a 1994 Tulsa County drive-by shooting.

The Project is housed at OCU Law and law students work on cases under the supervision of project staff. Since opening in August 2011, there have been over 1,300 requests for assistance. As was the case for Malcolm and De'Marchoe, litigation can take years and cost tens of thousands of dollars. Currently, OKIP has three cases pending in the courts; Willard O’Neal, Tulsa County, Rodney Fisher, Tulsa County, and Patrick Sampson, Pawnee County. This is in addition to the many others being investigated, but not yet filed.
