Cheers To Volunteers! – Saber Hossinei

The charges were dropped – but being wrongfully accused of a crime was enough to make Saber Hossinei decide to become a lawyer. He began volunteering with the Midwest Innocence Project, which reviews cases in which justice may not have been done. The work was important enough to Saber that a three-hour commute each way didn’t discourage him. Next, he took the job of development associate at the organization. That ended when Saber enrolled as a student at The University of Kansas School of Law. This summer, however, he was back, completing his law clerk internship.      

Saber Hossenei passed out information  at a Midwest Innocence Project event.
