The City of LA Pays Millions to Wrongfully Convicted Men

Hosted by

The LA City Council has agreed to pay $24 million to settle lawsuits by two men whose wrongful convictions for murder cost them years of their lives in prison. In a memo obtained by the LA Times, the City Attorney’s office called one case "extremely dangerous" and said the other was even "more problematic." Matt Lait is City Editor of the Times and a long-time police and investigative reporter.
