A former Oklahoma death row inmate will be speaking in three southwest Nebraska communities next month. Curtis McCarty was convicted twice and sentenced to death three times for a 1982 Oklahoma City murder he did not commite. He was exonerated based on prosecutorial misconduct and forensics after serving 21 years in prison, 19 of them on death row.

He will be speaking on May 19th at St. Patrick Catholic Church in North Platte, on May 20th at the First United Methodist Church in Lexington and on May 21st at the Memorial United Methodist Church in McCook. His appearances are sponsored by Nebraskans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty.
