Imagine being wrongfully convicted for a crime you didn't commit, or imagine your child's killer is still on the loose even though there's enough evidence for an arrest. I want to help shine light on the injustices of our judicial system. I delve into court documents, attend trials, and interview those close to the case to help me tell their stories.

    In 2024, CJ Rice was exonerated after serving 12 years in prison for attempted murder - a crime he was not physically capable of committing. 
    In this episode, we speak with CNN anchor Jake Tapper, who originally wrote about CJ in The Atlantic, and whose father, Dr. Theodore Tapper, played an integral role in the case.
    Thank you to Jake Tapper for speaking with us and helping us with this case.

Favorite Podcast

Presents the cases as they happened. I enjoy listening to Jillian. The cases presented are always interesting and have a broad net of topics.

Just reading

Jillian likes to hear her own voice. Apparently, since she just reads documents and does not seem to think it’s important to indicate she’s reading someone else’s words by starting out with “Quote…. Unquote”. This is Court Junkie, I want to hear audio from COURT! Stop reading everything in your flat tone and use more original recordings. Don’t you get enough patreon money to afford the FOIA invoices?

Great. Covers interesting cases intelligently

My favorite true crime show. Smart, insightful, detailed without being gratuitous. Week after week episodes have maintained their quality. They also manage to find lesser known cases and the ones we think we know about are covered from the legal perspective.
