Wrongful Convictions by the Numbers

News & Notes

Two men in a Cadillac were shot dead in broad daylight in Kansas City, Kan., on April 15, 1994. Court documents and sworn affidavits show how an innocent 17-year-old, Lamonte McIntyre, was convicted for the double murder and sentenced to life. A lot went wrong.

After 45 years, Wilbert Jones walked out of a Louisiana prison a free man on Wednesday. Now 65, Jones was just 19 when he was arrested and subsequently sentenced to life without parole.
