Is This Really Happening? The Wrongful Conviction of Jeff Deskovic Court Junkie

    • True Crime

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.
