Professor Mark Rabil featured in new RiverRun movie ‘In Pursuit of Justice’

Professor Mark Rabil,  director of Wake Forest School of Law’s Innocence and Justice Clinic, is featured in a new movie, “In Pursuit of Justice,” which is playing as part of Winston-Salem’s anual RiverRun Film Festival and will be shown at 5 p.m. on Friday, April 20, at SECCA and 4 p.m. on Friday, April 28, at Hanesbrand Theatre. In the film, Gregg Jamback tells the story of Greg Taylor, a Raleigh man who wrongfully spent 17 years in prison for murder before he was exonerated in 2010.

“I’d say this is an eye-opening film for people in this state, to find out how the criminal justice system can go wrong, and then, with the right attorneys and the new procedures of the Innocence Commission, can go right,” Rabil says. “The Innocence Commission, and the reforms discussed in this film, are part of the legacy of Darryl Hunt, and for him, for us, I’m proud.  I will definitely use this film in teaching my Innocence and Justice class in the years to come.”
