FOX-8 reporter Leah Beno visited with students Jon Dunsmoor, Drew Nettleman, Maggy Vaughn and Eleftherios Xixis on Nov. 8. Elon students are working with faculty advisors Steve Friedland and Catherine Dunham, as well as Chris Mumma, executive director of the N.C. Center on Actual Innocence, to examine selected cases involving potentially innocent people who are serving prison terms.

Beno's story included interviews with Dunsmoor, Nettleman, Vaughn and Xixis, as well as Friedland. Beno and FOX-8 are planning future reports throughout the 2007-2008 academic year on the Innocence Project and the work of Elon law students.
