Today on “The Security Brief,” Paul invites to the show Jeffrey Deskovic, the Founder and Executive Director of the Jeffrey Deskovic Foundation for Justice, who joins us for an all-new installment of “Wrongfully Convicted: The Deskovic Files.”
At the age of 17, Jeffrey was convicted of a murder and rape that he did not commit, spending 16 long years in prison. His wrongful conviction was the result of a coerced, false confession; prosecutorial misconduct; and an inept public defender. As shocking as his story is, Jeffrey is here to tell you that it is not unique, and that something like this could happen to you or someone you love.
Then, you’ll meet Alice Lopez, a woman whose husband William spent 23 and a half years imprisoned for a crime he did not commit. You won’t believe what happened when he finally got out after all that time.Also joining us is Bernard Vickers, a young man who took control when a manhole explosion threatened lives. He’s another worthy honoree in our “See Something, Say Something” series.
Watch the “Wrongfully Convicted: The Deskovic Files—16 Years to Life” episode of “The Security Brief” at 4 p.m. ET on Periscope.
