Ex-Texas death row inmate now questions prosecutors

A man who was exonerated after spending 12 years on Texas’ Death Row is getting the chance to question lawyers who are running to become Dallas’ top prosecutor.

Anthony Graves on Saturday moderated a panel of candidates for Dallas County district attorney. He called the event an opportunity to push forward changes in the criminal justice system in the nation’s most active death penalty state.

Convicted in 1994 of murder, Graves was cleared in 2010 after an alleged accomplice recanted his testimony that Graves was involved and an investigation found misconduct by the district attorney in the case. That prosecutor was later disbarred.

Graves now serves as the smart justice initiatives manager for the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas.

He says he understands a top prosecutor’s power “better than most.”
