Eric Foley

Eric Foley’s outcome sounds like a perfect end to an otherwise harrowing experience.…except that he served eight months in jail…except that he dropped out of college because he was arrested…except that it took 2 years to get his case dismissed… except that the police had no basis on which to arrest him in the first place…Unfortunately cases like Mr. Foley’s are often not the exceptions in Georgia but the rule.

In the words of Mr. Foley, “Thank God there’s a Georgia Justice Project, my public defender didn’t believe me, the DA didn’t believe me and after serving eight months in jail, I was beginning to not believe in myself.”
