Edgar Coker’s life has taken some interesting turns of late. This week, he appeared at an event for the Innocence Project at the University of Virginia Law School. There he met fellow exoneree and NFL free agent Brian Banks and novelist John Grisham.

Edgar was exonerated of a rape charge last month and then had his name removed from Virginia’s Sex Offender Registry as I reported in this story of his seven-year saga to find justice.

I’ll have a full story soon.
