ABSTRACT Saundra Westervelt and Kimberly Cook have done a great service by asking this question and by exploring the multiple dimensions of tragedy, irony, paradox, and pain that confront those wrongfully convicted of crimes, confronted with death row, and later found to be innocent. These are, of course, the "lucky ones" - the mistakes associated with their wrongful convictions were discovered. But how lucky are they? All struggle with multiple concerns, practical, social, and psychological.

Money alone will not help death row exonerees or those wrongly convicted

Money alone will not help death row exonerees or those wrongly convicted "It's a way for the state to say we are reluctant to admit fault and to provide assistance for something we did wrong, so we're going to pick out the most pristine cases, the most innocent of the innocent. A crime unfolds on video.

Life after Death Row examines the post-incarceration struggles of individuals who have been wrongly convicted of capital crimes, sentenced to death, and subsequently exonerated.Saundra D. Westervelt and Kimberly J. Cook present eighteen exonerees’ stories, focusing on three central areas: the invisibility of the innocent after release, the complicity of the justice system in that invisibility, and personal trauma management. Contrary to popular belief, exonerees are not automatically compensated by the state or provided adequate assistance in the transition to post-prison life. With no time and little support, many struggle to find homes, financial security, and community. They have limited or obsolete employment skills and difficulty managing such daily tasks as grocery shopping or banking. They struggle to regain independence, self-sufficiency, and identity.

Drawing upon research on trauma, recovery, coping, and stigma, the authors weave a nuanced fabric of grief, loss, resilience, hope, and meaning to provide the richest account to date of the struggles faced by people striving to reclaim their lives after years of wrongful incarceration.

Great book! Highly recommend this for anyone interested in learning more about the criminal justice system!

Dr. Cook and Dr. Westervelt show why the death penalty should be discontinued. Exonerees have less rights and resources than parolees.

I have read a vast collection of books on Criminal justice, Death penalty, wrongful convictions and our justice system. Still, I never fully understood the nuances and casualties of these things until I read this book even though I, myself, sat on death row until my innocence was established. The revealing, in depth, accounts and revelations of this book are simply astounding. These accounts of the many tragedies experienced by death row exonorees are true and real. They bring the actual consequences of post exonoration to light for the lay person as well as the professional. It reveals how although innocent person can be freed from death row, He is still not free of the stigma. He now starts a life sentence of injustice which includes the many uphill struggles that will make or break him. All did not survive. The realization of the atrocities endured by these survivors can even leave a grown man, even a death row exonoree, in tears. Even casual and entertainment readers will find this book virtually impossible to put down and in the end, will inevitably shake their heads saying " I didn't know----I didn't know."
