We are thrilled to announce the exoneration of Christopher Wickham.
Christopher was wrongly convicted of aggravated sexual assault in 1997, always maintaining his innocence. RMIC began working on Mr. Wickham's claim of innocence in 2014 and was joined by Salt Lake City Stoel Rives LLP attorneys, David Jordan and Lauren Shurman, in 2018. The post-conviction investigation uncovered new and verifiable facts including indisputable alibi evidence. Utah Third District Court Judge Royal I. Hansen signed the order exonerating Mr. Wickham on September 10, 2019.
In 1995, DeMarlo Berry was wrongfully convicted of a murder he did not commit. The Rocky Mountain Innocence Center accepted DeMarlo's case in 2011 and began a post-conviction investigation, eventually proving that DeMarlo was completely innocent. DeMarlo returned home to his family June 30, 2017.
