AGAIN THIS YEAR;
Welcome to part two of a two part series that examines wrongful conviction from the perspective of a wife and a mother, how this terrible injustice damages families . Two weeks ago we were joined by Valentina Real whose husband was convict of murder in 2014. This week our guest will be Deb Brewer whose son has been wrongfully convicted this year. These are powerful stories which need to be heard as part of our campaign to reform the criminal justice system
