Exoneration Project Clients to be Featured on '60 Minutes'
This Sunday, CBS' 60 Minutes will include a story titled "The False Confession Capital," about the many cases of in Chicago of convictions overturned due to coerced confessions. The story will feature Exoneration Project clients James Harden, Harold Richardson and their co-defendants in the "Dixmoor Five" and "Englewood Four" cases. Harden, Richardson, and all their co-defendants were released from prison last year (and the two Exoneration Project clients eventually received certificates of innocence) when DNA testing exonerated both of them and linked older sex offenders to the assaults/murders for which they were convicted. You can watch a preview of the story on the CBS website.
