Ndume Olatushani, a man who spent nearly 27 years in prison for a crime he did not commit, spoke at Vanderbilt Law School on Wednesday with his attorney and Vanderbilt Law School grad Anne-Marie Moyes. The Vanderbilt Hustler reports that Olatushani was accused of murdering a Memphis store owner in an attempted robbery in 1983, despite never having been to the state of Tennessee. “One of the first things I began to read was law books because I wanted to understand this process. I knew I had to understand this process,” Olatushani said.
