'Wrongful Conviction' explores the criminal justice system and the people who have been convicted from crimes they did not commit.Hosted by Jason Flom, this episode explores the case of Jon-Adrian Velazquez.
In 1999 Velazquez was found guilty for the murder of retired police officer Albert Ward. Eyewitness accounts described the triggerman to be a black male with dreads but Velazquez, a hispanic male who looked nothing like this description, was picked out of a line up after he volunteered just to clear his time.
Velazquez has spent over 20 years in prison while still affirming his innocence.
