On Saturday, October 7, 2017, from 4:00pm to 8:00pm the Oklahoma Innocence Project (OKIP) is hosting its 2nd annual fish fry to raise money to help wrongfully convicted Oklahomans regain their freedom. The Oklahoma City University School of Law Innocence Project operates on private donations and all services are offered free of charge to the clients.
The event is sponsored by and will take place at Saints Pub at 1715 NW 16th, Oklahoma City, in the Plaza District.

OKIP had its first exonerations in May 2016, when a Tulsa County Judge found Malcolm Scott and De'Marchoe Carpenter innocent and set them free. The pair served 22 years in prison for the wrongful conviction of murder.
