It's the last Legal Brief of the month, so you know what that means! Justine and Amanda tell you about all the people added to The National Exoneration Registry."The National Registry of Exonerations is a project of the Newkirk Center for Science & Society at University of California Irvine, the University of Michigan Law School and Michigan State University College of Law. It was founded in 2012 in conjunction with the Center on Wrongful Convictions at Northwestern University School of Law. The Registry provides detailed information about every known exoneration in the United States since 1989—cases in which a person was wrongly convicted of a crime and later cleared of all the charges based on new evidence of innocence. The Registry also maintains a more limited database of known exonerations prior to 1989."For more information of the National Registry of Exonerations:https://www.law.umich.edu/special/exoneration/Pages/about.aspxKenneth Webb: https://www.law.umich.edu/special/exoneration/Pages/casedetail.aspx?caseid=6466Adnan Syed:https://www.law.umich.edu/special/exoneration/Pages/casedetail.aspx?caseid=6429Marcellous Pittman:https://www.law.umich.edu/special/exoneration/Pages/casedetail.aspx?caseid=6431Anthony Kyles:https://www.law.umich.edu/special/exoneration/Pages/casedetail.aspx?caseid=6430Leroy Nelson, Kunta Gable, Bernell Juluke Jr.:https://www.law.umich.edu/special/exoneration/Pages/casedetail.aspx?caseid=6433Undisclosed Podcast:https://undisclosed-podcast.com/Don't forget to leave us a review and follow us on social media!https://www.ginandjusticepodcast.comhttps://www.facebook.com/GinAndJustice/IG: @ginandjusticepodcastTwitter: Gin_JusticePodTikTok: Gin_and_Justice

On January 7, 2002, Heidi Fero was taking care of 15 month old Brynn and her 4.5 year old brother, Kaed, along with her own two similarly aged children. That evening, Heidi called the children's father, reporting that Kaed physically hurt Brynn by pushing her head against the wall. Within hours, Brynn was unresponsive and Heidi called 911. Brynn survived, but she will forever require a caregiver from the injuries she endured. Heidi was ultimately prosecuted and convicted for first degree assault of a child, and sentenced to 15 years in prison. In 2007, as an American college student abroad in Italy, Amanda was accused of murdering her roommate. After an 8-year trial and 4 years in an Italian prison, Italy's highest court ultimately exonerated Amanda. She has since become an advocate for criminal justice reform and media ethics. Amanda is also a journalist, public speaker, author, and co-host, with her partner Christopher Robinson, of the podcast Labyrinths.  Amanda's personal experience has led her to become a fierce advocate for wrongfully convicted women – and the same goes for Heidi. Heidi and Amanda met at an Innocence Network Conference years ago, and they have remained friends since. Separately and together, their advocacy work is largely driven by the importance of highlighting female wrongful convictions, and, as in Heidi's case, the fact that the majority of wrongfully convicted women were – and are – incarcerated for crimes that never even happened.

Early on the morning of August 11, 1979, an intruder broke into a Manchester, GA home to find a 74-year-old woman asleep on her couch. The man beat and sexually assaulted the woman and then demanded all her money. She gave the attacker cash from her purse and then he left through the back door.  The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment, but no rape kit was collected due to the extent of her injuries. At the victim's house, Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) crime scene investigators collected pubic hairs from a bed sheet that had been on the couch at the time of the rape. Police then created a composite sketch of the attacker from the victim's description, and a GBI agent who was investigating John Jerome White on another charge thought he resembled the sketch. White was convicted on May 30, 1980 of rape, assault, burglary, and robbery.  To learn more about the junk science of hair microscopy evidence: https://lavaforgood.com/podcast/152-wrongful-conviction-junk-science-hair-microscopy-evidence/ To learn more and get involved, visit: https://www.ajc.com/news/local/from-2007-snapshot-eyewitness-mistake/TxDolwbHy82ba4w1eefq8H/ https://www.georgiainnocenceproject.org/ Wrongful Conviction is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co.

Today on Crime & Entertainment we take you on a unbelievable ride of murder, wrongful conviction & incarceration. Imagine walking in your home to find your wife lying dead, stabbed to death on the floor. The sight of that alone is enough to send someone over the edge but imagined being accused of doing such a heinous act. Thats exactly what happened to our guest today, Russ Faria. On December 27th, 2011, Russell Faria returned to his Troy, Missouri, home after his weekly game night with friends to an unthinkable, grisly scene: His wife, Betsy, lay dead, a knife still lodged in her neck. She'd been stabbed fifty-five times.First responders concluded that Betsy was dead for hours when Russ discovered her. No blood was found implicating Russ, and surveillance video, receipts, and friends' testimony all supported his alibi. Yet incredibly, police and the prosecuting attorney ignored the evidence. In their minds, Russ was guilty. But prominent defense attorney Joel J. Schwartz quickly recognized the real killer.The motive was clear. Days before her murder, the terminally ill Betsy replaced her husband with her friend, Pamela Hupp, as her life insurance beneficiary. Still, despite the prosecution's flimsy case and Hupp's transparent lies, Russ was convicted—leaving Hupp free to kill again. This is the story of what can happen when police, prosecutor, judge, and jury all fail in their duty to protect the innocent—and let a killer get away with murder.Check out the detailed book on this case belowBone Deep: Untangling the Betsy Faria Murder Case: Bosworth Jr., Charles, Schwartz, Joel: 9780806541976: Amazon.com: BooksLinks to Crime & Entertainment Like us on Facebook -  https://www.facebook.com/crimeandente...Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/crimenenter...Listen on Spotify - https://open.spotify.com/show/4T67Bs5...Listen on Apple Music - https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast...Listen on Stitcher - https://www.stitcher.com/show/crime-e...Listen on Google

In March of 1987, a female University of Alabama student was returning to her apartment in Tuscaloosa, AL, when she was attacked by a masked man who raped her and stole her car keys and bank card. The woman's abandoned car was later located, and a witness reported seeing a man emerge from it some time earlier. This witness's singular identification of 23 year old Jeffrey Holemon, who had been in jail on an unrelated, nonviolent charge, led to Jeffrey's conviction and life sentence.  Beth is an award-winning journalist and writer based in Birmingham, AL. Her work has been published by The Los Angeles Times, The Bitter Southerner, The Daily Beast and Facing South. Beth was a 2019 Writing for Justice Fellow with Pen America and has done extensive reporting on Alabama prisons. Before her focus on criminal justice issues, she spent 20 years working as a TV news anchor and reporter. Beth and Jeffrey had never met before, but with Beth's connection to Alabama, Beth found Jeffrey's case and was immediately taken. Beth found it remarkable that the DNA evidence from Jeffrey's appeals was a result of his own pro se litigation efforts. Litigation filed pro se, or ‘on one's own behalf,' is often discounted by courts, and it is an incredible accomplishment for an individual to gain any traction as a result of pro se motions.

It was founded in 2012 in conjunction with the Center on Wrongful Convictions at Northwestern University School of Law. The Registry provides detailed information about every known exoneration in the United States since 1989—cases in which a person was wrongly convicted of a crime and later cleared of all the charges based on new evidence of innocence.

On August 20, 1991, 24-year-old Tae Jung Ho was robbed and shot to death while walking with a friend in Philadelphia, PA. A coincidence involving a rental car and license plate number led to Chester Hollman III being stopped by police and arrested. Chester was convicted of second-degree murder and robbery and sentenced to life without parole. In 1991, Jimmy was only 21 years old when he was wrongfully convicted of a gruesome murder committed in broad daylight in North Philadelphia, PA. Jimmy was sent to death row. With no physical evidence, DNA, or a weapon, the musician spent 25 years in prison and was finally exonerated in 2017.  Despite overlaps in their cases, Jimmy and Chester met after they were exonerated. Jimmy set up a conference to campaign for DA Larry Krasner, and he invited all Philadelphia exonerees. There, he met Chester, who immediately told Jimmy he knew him and listened to all of his music. Chester and Jimmy became friends, and bonded over the fact that the same prosecutor, Roger King, was central in sending them both to prison for crimes they did not commit.

On February 27, 1992, Bernard Jiminez, along with his wife, Kimberly Belinsky, and three children were robbed at gunpoint in a neighborhood in Gary, Indiana. Bernard and the gunman struggled and Bernard was fatally shot. Belinsky selected 23-year-old Willie “Timmy” Donald out of a photo lineup believing he was the gunman. Another woman who was robbed in her home that same day selected Donald as well. Both women described their robbers similarly, they mentioned that the man had a severely scarred complexion, while Donald had no acne or other scars on his face. At the time of the robberies, Donald was car shopping with his sister and her partner. They both testified as to Donald's whereabouts that day as did the car salesmen. With no physical or forensic evidence tying Donald to the crime, he was still charged and convicted of first-degree murder and two counts of armed robbery, and sentenced to 60 years in prison.  To learn more and get involved, visit: https://www.pnw.edu/college-of-humanities-education-social-sciences/exoneration-coalition/https://www.gofundme.com/f/righting-the-wrong-of-a-wrongful-convictionhttps://www.pnw.edu/giving/ Wrongful Conviction is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co.

Prisons are built with one thing in mind: surveillance. The architecture is designed to assert control and diminish privacy. But even in these spaces, people find ways to claim just a bit of privacy. In this episode and the next, we explore how individuals adapt to prison architecture. First: carving out pockets of privacy, real and imagined. Listen to Earlonne guest hosting the podcast Wrongful Conviction here. As always, big thanks to Lt. Sam Robinson and Warden Ron Broomfield for their support of the show.

In April 1989, a drive-by shooting in San Francisco, CA, left at least 11 people injured, and 2 people dead. Despite the lack of physical or forensic evidence, Caramad Conley was convicted of conspiracy to commit first degree murder, two counts of first degree murder, and eleven counts of attempted murder and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole on the strength of one man's testimony, William Polk.  Earlonne is a podcaster and author, best known for co-hosting and co-founding the podcast Ear Hustle. Woods helped create Ear Hustle while incarcerated at San Quentin State Prison. In November 2018, Earlonne's sentence was commuted by California Governor Jerry Brown.
