Beach Walk 626 – The Innocence of Jeffrey Deskovic

Imagine you were arrested at age 16 for a rape and murder you did not commit.

You were held and questioned without parents or a lawyer. You were eventually convicted (despite contradictory DNA evidence), and served 17 years in jail. Wrongful incarceration for nearly two decades.

The result is Jeffrey Deskovic, and I am amazed at the grace and light that is he. A few months ago I read the amazing true story of Jeffrey Deskovic. He is still a young man who has been through some amazing trials already, and yet has come through them with grace and strength. I invited him to the Podcamp NYC conference to meet other new media creators for interviews, and to learn how to use this technology to further his own message. Our episode barely scratched the surface – I hope you will check out these other links.
