Episode 14 – Rectifying Wrongful Convictions (49:14)
In Episode 14 we show how to tell if a conviction is wrongful or righteous. We examine questions that surround the Patricia Rorrer case in Pennsylvania (from 9:00-21:00). Rorrer was convicted of the 1994 murders of Joann Katrinak and her three-month-old son. We discuss how the West Memphis 3, Dr. Martin Luther King, and a 2004 landmark study by Canadian prosecutors, has informed JFJ’s approach to wrongful convictions. We discuss how MURDER IN HAWAII may help prevent wrongful convictions in the future.
