S3: The Innocents - Tim Howard

Season 3, Episode 3,   Nov 27, 2020, 07:00 AM

Alex speaks to Tim Howard about spending 19 years behind bars - nearly 15 of them on Death Row - for the murder of his best friend. Contaminated evidence was used to convict Tim and there were strong accusations of racial bias. 

At his second trial in 2015, a compromise verdict was reached: acquittal of all capital and first-degree charges, but conviction on the second-degree charges. Tim was forced to spend two more years in prison. He has always maintained his innocence.

The Innocents is presented by Alex Hannaford and produced by Peter Sale
