Sarah Cooper, a visiting fellow at the Arizona Justice Project, will talk to students Thursday in Deb Siroky's criminology class at Skyline High School. Her topic will be the conviction, imprisonment and release of Ray Krone, the innocent Arizona resident who served more than a decade in prison and two years on death row for a murder he did not commit.
Cooper wrote the "Post-Mortem of a Wrongful Conviction" for the Ray Krone case. She is a lecturer in law at Birmingham City University, where she teaches English criminal law, American criminal procedure and aspects on capital punishment. She is also a founding member of the Law School's Center for American Legal Studies.
