Former Death Row Inmate to Speak Feb. 8 at Penn State York

2/1/2008 —

Imagine life as you know it changing forever and you’re slated to die.  Former death row inmate Ray Krone will share his experience of being falsely accused and jailed during a program on Friday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. at Penn State York’s Pullo Family Performing Arts Center.   The program, sponsored by the Communication Arts and Sciences (CAS) Club, is free when participants bring one canned or nonperishable food item  to the event.   The donations will benefit the New Hope Ministries of Dover, PA, a charity Krone supports.

A former Boy Scout and Air Force sergeant, Krone thought the death penalty was for the monsters of the world but in 1991 found himself on Arizona’s death row for a murder he did not commit.  In 2002, DNA evidence exonerated this Dover native and he was released after spending 10 years in prison.

Attend this program and learn more about one of the most controversial issues facing our country and the world from someone who has experience it firsthand.
