Wallach On Law – Exonerations and Coming Home – Featuring Nicholas Yarris. Nicholas Yarris was the first individual to seek post-conviction DNA testing. He was convicted in 1982 based on an edited confession. During his incarceration, he was subsequently convicted of escape and sentenced to 30 years. He was exonerated of the murder in 2003. He provides insight to the life of a death-row inmate, and his fight for justice. His book, “Seven Days to Live: The Amazing True Story of How One Man Survived 21 Years on Death Row for a Crime He Didn't Commit” is about to be re-released, as well as a documentary on his road to freedom and return to post-incarceration society.
