Due Process - Falsely Imprisoned, The McCallum CaseDUE PROCESS

Sunday, 8/21 at 9:30am & 7pm and Tuesday, 8/23 at 11:30pm

Falsely Imprisoned: The McCallum Case Estimates range from 2-10% of everyone locked up is actually innocent.  In a country that puts millions behind bars, that’s tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands, falsely imprisoned. That stat is shocking, but the horror really sets in when you come face-to -ace with the innocent people behind those numbers, and none more than David McCallum, who lost nearly two-thirds of his life to a crime he did not commit. It took a virtual village of lawyers and supporters, including Rutgers Law Prof. Laura Cohen and the students in her Criminal and Youth Justice Clinic, to finally win his freedom. In the studio: Cohen joins Ryan Haygood, president of the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice, in discussing the many troubling issues raised by David’s case: issues of juvenile justice, coerced confessions, false imprisonment, inadequate legal counsel, exoneration and re-entry.
