Anthony Graves spent 18 years in prison, including 12 years on Texas’ death row, and faced 2 execution dates as an innocent man.  Since his exoneration in October 2010, he has served as a powerful advocate for criminal justice reform.

The State Bar of Texas recently upheld its decision to disbar Charles Sebesta, the prosecutor (and former District Attorney of Washington and Burleson Counties) responsible for Graves’ wrongful conviction.  Sebesta appealed the Bar’s vote in June 2015 to revoke his law license but the Board of Disciplinary Appeals affirmed its finding of egregious “professional misconduct” in the case.  The decision is now final.
