ND Law students help Exoneration Project free Illinois man
On March 15, Donald Whalen walked out of the county jail in Bloomington, Illinois, and embraced his family members. After more than 27 years in prison, he was free to enjoy a simple pleasure — dinner at his mother’s house.
Whalen always insisted that he was innocent of murdering his father in 1991, and the Exoneration Project is giving the 52-year-old an opportunity to prove his innocence.
