The Wrongful Conviction Of Joseph Webster: Episode 2

av Latino USA | Publicerades 5/7/2021

We continue the story of Joseph Webster, a Black man who was serving a life sentence for murder in Tennessee – a murder he says he didn’t commit. After a conviction review unit in Nashville created to address potential miscarriages of justice refused to re-investigate his case, despite uncovering new evidence, Joseph and his lawyer question whether these units can actually address the flaws in the justice system. We also explore the state of wrongful convictions across the U.S. and whether review units are helping — or not — to free people from prison. And finally, the moment Joseph and his family have been dreaming of for nearly 15 years.
