College of Western Idaho (CWI) hosted a guest lecture on Wednesday (Oct. 19) that was received with a tremendous response from both the public and CWI community. Over 150 guests were in attendance for a special presentation by Executive Director of the Idaho Innocence Project, Dr. Greg Hampikian, at CWI’s Nampa Campus Academic Building. Dr. Hampikian talked about his role in exonerating innocent individuals from death row. He was joined by Charles Fain, who was exonerated after 19 years on death row. Thank you to everyone who supported the event and helped make it a great success.
