This is an inspirational story about the power of conviction: the wrongful conviction that sent James Tillman to prison for over 18 years, and the power of his own conviction that helped him persevere, offer a transformational forgiveness and earn a redemption that is so valued he remarkably calls his experience in prison, “a gift.”
"The Power of Conviction" is for people who are facing tough times. You will understand that you’re not alone, that things can be brutally bad and we can react poorly at times, but where there is love, there is always hope.
How did James Tillman endure 18 years of hell in prison? What specific lessons can you learn about the transformational power of forgiveness, love and conviction? When faced with your own challenges in life, what will you choose?

This week we will be discussing the Brian Peixoto case in Massachusetts with advocate Lisa Munger. We will be taking calls during the second half of the show. Please call (347) 850-1478 with questions and comments about the case.
Brian Peixoto was convicted in 1996 for the murder of his girlfriend's 3-year-old son Christopher Affonso, Jr., and sentenced to life in prison in Massachusetts.
Peixoto was 26 years old at the time of his arrest. He had been dating the 3-year-old's mother Ami Sneed for about 3 months at the time of the child's death. Sneed had recently been staying at his home.
The State's medical examiner determined during autopsy that the child died from blunt head trauma leading investigators to suspect child abuse. Peixoto and Sneed immediately became their lead suspects. After being pressured by police, and giving up to eight different versions of events, Sneed provided a statement implicating Peixoto.
Peixoto's supporters state that the child died from injuries sustained during a fall, not from child abuse, and they have four nationally and internationally recognized medical experts that agree with them. Peixoto also has the support of the Massachusetts CPCS Innocence Program.
