Wrongly convicted man gets job at crime lab after being on death row

Anthony Graves, 49, was sent to Texas death row in 1992 but had the conviction reversed in 2006, and was released four years later. He now works for the Houston Forensic Science Center.

A Texas man who spent 18 years in prison after being convicted of a crime he didn’t commit has been given a position on a crime lab’s board of directors.

Anthony Graves, 49, who was sent to Texas death row for the 1992 slayings of six people, had his conviction reversed in 2006 and was released from prison in 2010.

Now, he’s been made a member on the Houston Forensic Science Center’s board of directors to help the city prevent future wrongful convictions.

Since leaving prison, Graves has been telling his story and trying to make change in the criminal justice system – he thinks this next step will further his efforts.
