As cities and communities around the world practice social distancing to help slow the spread of the coronavirus, people everywhere have been turning to streaming platforms to pass the time and learn new things. But if you feel like you’ve watched everything there is, we’ve got great news for you — “The Innocence Files” is now available on Netflix.
“The Innocence Files” is a documentary series that chronicles the work of the Innocence Project and other organizations in the Innocence Network fighting to overturn wrongful convictions. Watch it now.
Divided into three parts, the series dives deep into three different causes of wrongful conviction: prosecutorial misconduct, eyewitness misidentification and the use of unreliable or unvalidated forensic science. Over nine episodes, “The Innocence Files” tells the stories of eight people — Chester Hollman III, Kenneth Wyniemko, Alfred Dewayne Brown, Thomas Haynesworth, Franky Carrillo, Levon Brooks, Kennedy Brewer and Keith Harward — how they were wrongfully convicted, and their uphill battles for justice.
Executive produced and directed by Academy Award nominee Liz Garbus and Academy Award winners Alex Gibney and Roger Ross Williams, the powerful show connects viewers to the people driving the movement to reform the justice system and the individuals whose lives have been impacted by wrongful conviction. The series also includes episodes directed by Sarah Dowland, Academy Award nominee Jed Rothstein and Emmy Award winner Andy Grieve.

I am so sorry this happened to him.
Is there any movement on prosecutors being assigned and not voted in?
Thanks to Jason Flom and the podcast “Wrongful Convictions” I am wholeheartedly impassioned by what you do.

That DA still don’t get it:
For example, when the DA stated, “did you go by Home Depot and rent someone.” That statement made my jaw drop. I’m black and I was offended for people of Latin decent. It was racist. This is what people like her problem is…..they let a few determine how they feel about the majority.
