FEATURING ALISON FLOWERS – What happens when the US criminal justice system wrongly convicts and incarcerates you for a crime you did not commit? If you are lucky enough to be exonerated and released years later, what happens then? That’s the question that my guest Alison Flowers attempts to answer in her new book Exoneree Diaries: The Fight For Innocence, Independence, and Identity
in which she follows the lives of four exonerees: Kristine Bunch, Jacques Rivera, James Kluppelberg, and Antione Day.
