Franky Carrillo was raised in Lynwood Ca, a small suburb of Los Angeles. At 16, he was arrested as the prime suspect for a crime he did not commit. Franky was tried as an adult and found guilty of murder, despite his continual assertion that he was innocent. He was sentenced to live out the remainder of his life in prison. During his incarceration Franky never lost hope in himself, the judicial system, or his unwavering faith. With these personal convictions he persevered and began a series of efforts to prove his innocence. Franky’s efforts finally came true and he was exonerated on March 16, 2011. After a long period of facing the realities of injustice, he has re-emerged as a champion of equality and justice. He’s a recent graduate of Loyola Marymount University, he is now married and the proud father of two sons.
