David Camm to take new job advocating claims of wrongful convictions
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- After 13 years as an Indiana prisoner, David Camm is taking on a new job. The non-profit organization Investigating Innocence has announced Camm has been hired as a new case coordinator.
Investigating Innocence provides support for those who feel they've been wrongfully convicted.
The group cites Camm's experience as a law enforcement officer and his experience as a wrongfully accused murderer, who was later exonerated.
Camm also posted a letter on his Facebook page talking about what he's thankful for this weekend saying a "steadfast family, unwavering friends and for a legal team that proved to be second to none".
Last month, David Camm was found not guilty in the murders of his wife and two children in a retrial after a thirteen year process with two overturned convictions.
On Friday, November 29th, Sam Lockhart, Camm's uncle, posted a message to his Facebook page with a statement from Camm.
"...So I give thanks on this Thanksgiving Day, as I recognize the gift of Freedom that a gracious God has given me. I'm thankful for steadfast family, unwavering friends and for a legal team that proved to be second to none – ever and of course an honest, sincere fact weighing jury. I'm thankful for opportunity and for potential. I am thankful for all of you who have sacrificed so much personally, professionally and financially, enabling all of us to have the opportunity to share these messages of Thanksgiving while being free to make the choice to do so..."
The rest of Camm's message is posted on Sam Lockhart's Facebook page.
