Anthony Legion was wrongfully convicted with his co-defendant, Marvin Cotton, who also was a recipient of the Walking Free Fund.
While incarcerated, Anthony focused on studying the law. In 2005, he filed a federal petition for a writ of habeas corpus. In 2007 U.S. District Judge Paul Gadola granted the writ and ordered Legion's convictions vacated. This was ultimately turned over by the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in 2017. During this time, Anthony helped many other inmates with their appeals.
Anthony is a paralegal and plans to do freelance work for his employment and intends to give significant attention to pro bono work of others wrongfully convicted.
