Medill Innocence Project Involved in a Wrongful Conviction

Hosted by

In 1999 the Medill Innocence Project took up the case of Anthony Porter, who had been sentenced to death in the killings of two people at a Chicago swimming pool. Porter was released when the Medill Innocence Project came up with a confession by Alstory Simon, who then spent 15 years in prison. Now it turns out that confession was falsely obtained, and he, too, has been released.  Eric Zorn is a columnist for the Chicago Tribune.
