Help Sean Ellis: Past Needham High Student Who Was Wrongly Imprisoned
Sean Ellis was a Needham High School METCO student who spent 21 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Although Sean has been released, the District Attorney plans to retry his case. Sean needs the support of the Needham community to encourage the DA to discontinue plans to retry him for a fourth time.
