An article by Research Professor Paul Abramson and undergraduate psychology major Sienna Bland-Abramson, titled “Racial Animus, Police Corruption, and a Wrongful Conviction of Murder: Complex PTSD and the Vestiges of Anguish,” is being featured by the UCLA Newsroom. The case involved a wrongfully convicted young Black man who was incarcerated in Northern California maximum security prisons for 20 years before his conviction was overturned and he was exonerated. The restitution litigation that followed in its wake lasted for an additional 10 years after the conviction was overturned.
