False Confessions, Junk Science, and Deadly Plea Deals
Michael Semanchik is the managing attorney at the California Innocence Project (CIP), a nonprofit organization that works...
So far, we’ve heard from Brian Banks and Uriah Courtney about false accusations and DNA evidence. Coming up in mid-May, we’re going to talk with Marty Tankleff about his false confession and why he admitted to a crime despite being completely innocent. Later this season, we’ll hear about the misidentification of Luis Vargas, Junk Science that put good parents behind bars, and Marilyn Mulero’s plea deal for death.
Featured song ‘Brand New Start’ by our good friend and real-life exoneree William Michael Dillon.
