Helping Heal the Wounds
of Wrongful Conviction
The Sunny Center Foundation is a non-profit corporation in the USA, established in 2014 to support people after they’d been released from prison who’d suffered the terrible injustice of wrongful conviction.
The center uses a unique holistic approach encompassing physical, mental and spiritual healing and continuing support.
Now its mission has expanded to helping the families and others who are affected by the injustice, as well as extending their healing techniques to the general public.
It was established by Sunny Jacobs and Peter Pringle, both of whom had been sentenced to death for crimes they did not commit. Sunny was exonerated in Florida in 1992 after spending 17 years incarcerated and Peter in Ireland in 1980 after 15 years in prison.
They met in 1998, fell in love, got married and became part of each other’s healing process, both having found the practices of yoga, meditation and prayer to be their path to healing and happiness.
