Exonerations Report

Hosted by

A new report released today found that 150 people convicted of crimes were exonerated in 2015. A third of these people were originally found guilty of murder. And in half of the cases, it was found later that no crime was committed. Several of these exonerations occurred in Harris County, Texas. We find out how someone can even go to prison if no crime was committed in the first place. And how many false convictions are actually out there?
