Camille Tilley


Camille Tilley’s daughter, Courtney Bisbee, a mother and honors graduate RN, was living in Scottsdale, Arizona, working on her master’s degree and with a new job as a high school nurse, when she was falsely accused by a teenager of sexually touching him. Camille left their businesses behind, sold their homes and moved from Atlanta to free Courtney, who has languished in prison for over 10 years. Her “actual innocence” habeas is awaiting an unprecedented 2-day evidentiary hearing in federal court. Camille turned this tragedy into action, by organizing a grassroots nationwide innocence movement and fighting for sentencing and criminal justice reform.
