Exonerated former inmate pushes for the 'Challenging Wrongful Convictions Act'
In the 1990s, Derrick Hamilton of Brooklyn was sentenced to 25-years-to-life for a murder he didn’t commit. While in prison, he filed 10 post-conviction notices, which were all denied.
After serving 21 years, Hamilton was paroled in 2014. In 2015, a court exonerated him.
