A conversation series every Friday in May featuring national, leading professionals, and legal experts analyzing the Derek Chauvin Trial.
Timothy T. Williams, Jr. Foundation for Wrongful Convictions (TTWFWC) is making history by providing attorneys, experts, and criminal investigators with grant funding that embraces their prevailing industry rates to work as teams on state and federal wrongful conviction cases initially focused in California. In response to the national crisis of wrongful convictions, TTWFWC sets itself apart by funding the exoneration process from beginning to end.
TTWFWC will also provide continuing education and professional development workshops to the next generation of expert witnesses, criminal investigators, and attorneys.
TTWFWC has been endorsed by some of the most recognizable names in law, including Loyola Law School's Project for the Innocent (LPI) and award-winning trial lawyer Thomas Mesereau.
TTWFWC aims to exonerate at least one wrongfully convicted person by 2025.
Mr. Timothy T. Williams, Jr. is somewhat of a “hidden figure” as an African American national leading expert on police procedure, use of force, and wrongful conviction. Also, as a retired Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Senior Detective Supervisor, with more than 46 years of experience working in the criminal justice system, Mr. Williams is the perfect person to lead such a historic endeavor.
Since the debut of his consultancy practice in 2003, T.T. Williams, Jr., Investigations, Inc., Mr. Williams has provided expert testimony in more than 200 cases in Criminal, State and Federal Courts nationwide. Also, he has analyzed over 1,300 cases. Most notably, Mr. Williams' expert analysis in the wrongful murder conviction of Kash D. Register helped to lead to the largest reported settlement, at that time, in an individual civil rights case in the history of Los Angeles, totaling $16.7 million in restitution in 2016.
Mr. Williams consistently appears as an expert and contributor on various network, cable, and radio programs including 2020, Good Morning America, CNN, CBS News, Fox News, and Inside Edition. Mr. Wiliams has numerous accolades and he is a nationally sought after speaker regarding police procedure, use of force, and wrongful conviction cases. He is the author of, "A Deep Dive: An Expert Analysis of Police Procedure, Use of Force, and Wrongful Convictions”.
Is one life saved worth $5 million? Did you know that there are almost 250,000 wrongfully convicted persons nationally, a majority of whom are African American men and women, as well as other minorities from underserved communities.
Since a majority of wrongful conviction cases do not have DNA evidence, it can sometimes take years, even decades, to prove the innocence of a wrongfully convicted person. However, such legal personnel cannot afford to work pro bono long term and most convicted persons seeking exoneration cannot afford legal representation.
Per Santa Clara University of Law, some cases can cost more than $5 million and an estimated 5,000 attorney hours or more to win the freedom of a wrongfully convicted person.
