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.

    The Case of Jamarion Lawhorn

    The Case of Jamarion Lawhorn

    In August 2014, a tragedy unfolded at a playground in Kentwood, Michigan. A 9-year-old boy was deceased, and a 12-year-old boy was charged with murder. 
    How did this happen, and what would the criminal justice system do with such a young killer?
    Thank you to Vicki Seidl, from the Kent County Prosecutor’s Office, for speaking with me about this case.

    Is This Really Happening? The Wrongful Conviction of Jeff Deskovic

    Is This Really Happening? The Wrongful Conviction of Jeff Deskovic

    In November 1989, 15-year-old Angela Correa was found murdered in a park in Peekskill, New York. Investigators quickly honed in on 16-year-old Jeff Deskovic, one of her high school classmates. Although the scientific evidence at the scene excluded him, he was ultimately convicted of her murder.

    This is Jeff’s story.

    NOTE: In some parts of the interview, you will hear a dog barking in the background - that’s my not-so-fierce dog, Porky, and I apologize for the inconvenience. My usual recording equipment for interviews malfunctioned.

Love it!

I have been looking for a new podcast to listen too as I have caught up on all my other podcasts. I went through quite a few but I wasn’t happy with any of them due to the speaker/s being dull or how it seems their reading a book. Not interested. Court Junkie is exactly what I am looking for. The speaker hits all the right spots as far as information, tone, detective interviews all of it. I love this podcast!
