About this course:
Imagine being sentenced to life in prison for a crime you knew nothing about. Join Nick O'Connell and his father Frank O'Connell as they share how Frank was wrongfully convicted of a 1984 Pasadena murder. After 27 years behind bars, Frank was exonerated and freed in 2012, making him one of the more than 2,400 nationally recognized exonerees. Their story is unique, but the systemic flaws that contribute to miscarriages of justice are common across the country. This course examines Frank's case and provides an overview of the proven causes and potential remedies for wrongful convictions in America.
