Wrongfully Incarcerated for 23 years with Ricky Kidd Women Want Strong Men

    • Health & Fitness

Can you imagine going to prison for 23 years for a crime you didn’t commit?  Well, that is the real-life story of today’s guest, Mr. Ricky Kidd.


Ricky was arrested in 1996 for the shooting deaths of George Bryant and Oscar Bridges in Kansas City, MO. He was arrested and convicted despite the fact he had an alibi at the time of the crime. His public defender never presented his alibi at trial. No physical evidence linked him to the crime. The prosecutor has been accused of misconduct in several other cases and five of the convictions she helped secure have been overturned.  Ricky was exonerated on his last appeal with the help of the Missouri Innocence Project. 


Ricky is now a motivational public speaker, author, and playwright. His sole post-exoneration focus has been to educate and inspire millions of people about resilience in the face of their challenges. Ricky also has advocated for the wrongfully convicted all over the country and has even trained prosecutors on how to avoid wrongful convictions as a criminal justice consultant. Because of this, many around the nation continue to be captivated by Kidd’s story of true Resilience. The intensity of the public’s focus on Kidd’s extraordinarily and compelling story has served as fuel for him to continue to share, educate and inspire.
