This week Ian Wallach discusses exonoration.  We will speak with Cynthia Orr -- one of the top criminal defense lawyers in the nation, ( co-chair elect to the Criminal Justice Section of the American Bar Association and recipient of this year's prestigious Robert Heeney award) about the process of exoneration, and the unexpected hurdles that can face an innocent person who has been wrongly convicted.  And we also welcome Christopher Ochoa, an innocent man who was convicted of rape and murder and incarcerated for 11 years, and then was exonerated in 2011.  His conviction was based on a coerced confession, and we will discuss what that is and how it takes place.  You will also learn his surprising take on the Criminal Justice system.   Ian Wallach also discusses the Joseph Lamont Walker trial in Annapolis, Maryland, the execution of Joseph R. Wood (the fourth botched execution of 2014), and the warrant in the Manassas sexting case.
