ONE NIGHT. FIFTEEN MINUTES. A LIFE UPENDED.
Albert Wilson’s life forever changed one night in September 2016. Albert, a college student who was passionate about impacting the world and reshaping the narrative of Black identity through journalism, was falsely accused of raping a young woman he met at a bar. The interaction between them lasted only 15 minutes, but it changed Albert’s life forever. Albert was convicted despite no physical evidence of sexual intercourse, an impossible timeline, and a biased jury. An innocent young man was sentenced to 12 years in prison. This is his story.
