After Being Falsely Convicted, This Man Is On a Mission to Share the Power of Literacy
If we are falsely accused of anything, no matter how small, it’s only natural for us to feel bitter, frustrated, or angry. And after being convicted of a crime he did not commit at the age of 14 and spending 20 years in prison, John Bunn had every right to feel all three. To make matters worse, at the time of his conviction, John couldn’t read or write, so his ability to make his voice heard was greatly limited. Now, at age 41 and fully exonerated, John is using his horrific experience as a catalyst to ensure others are not stifled in the same way.
