Author Karen Lucchesi Launches Charitable Fundraiser
LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- In celebration of her June 2nd birthday, Karen Lucchesi, best-selling author of "Innocent Woman, The Karen Lucchesi Story," and a passionate advocate against wrongful convictions, is launching a charitable fundraiser for Innocence Texas.
“I’ve created this charitable organization because there is no greater honor on my birthday than to have people donate to Innocence Project- Texas,” Lucchesi expresses.
“Wrongful convictions devastate lives and families all over Texas — and fighting a wrongful conviction can be nearly impossible. Innocence Texas provides free, first-class investigative and legal services to indigent prisoners serving time for crimes they did not commit,” Innocence Texas states.
As a personal victim of wrongful conviction, Lucchesi released her memoir, "Innocent Woman, The Karen Lucchesi Story," in May 2018. Detailing the harrowing real-life story of how she was framed for laundering money and facing a 10-year prison sentence for a crime she did not commit, Lucchesi continues raising awareness at the highest levels of government and funds in support of innocent victims, just like her.
"We are enormously grateful to Karen for bringing attention to our work. Behind every person we help set free after years of suffering for crime they did not commit is the support of everyday Americans like Karen. That support is the lifeblood of our search for innocence," cites Robert Hoelscher, Deputy Director, Innocence Texas.
“This wonderful organization helps people to not be traumatized by unfair prosecution, as I was. I strongly believe and stand in firm advocacy for Innocence Texas’ imperative mission,” Lucchesi emotionally concludes.
