“It's difficult to describe what it is like to serve time on death row knowing you are innocent. All you know is that what seems like an awful nightmare is now reality, a reality beyond comprehension.”
- Ray Krone, released from prison April 8, 2002
The relatively new scientific technology using DNA has greatly affected the criminal justice system in this country. It can not only help to convict the truly guilty but also help exonerate the wrongfully convicted. Join us as we hear from both Alan Cohen, a lawyer who works with an organization created to help exonerate those wrongfully convicted and Ray Krone, an individual exonerated through DNA after spending an extended period of time in prison for a crime he did not convict
