    Jason Flom with Keith Washington

    On January 24th, 2007, Keith Washington, a police officer and former Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army, was home with his wife and 6 year old daughter while they awaited a delivery from Marlo Furniture store. Two men, Robert White and Brandon Clark, arrived with the furniture, and while showing them to the master bedroom, Keith realized that White had broken away and was snooping in his daughter’s bedroom. Keith asked them to leave which started a fight. Overpowered by the two men, Keith shot them in self defense, killing Clarke. Meanwhile, 12 time convicted felon, Robert White, who wasn’t even a Marlo employee, became the state’s main witness. Keith was convicted and sentenced to 45 years, while Robert White continued his life of crime.

    Jason Flom with Atif Rafay

    Jason Flom with Atif Rafay

    Atif Rafay was a thriving, brilliant, and happy student who had just finished his freshman year at Cornell University. On a weekend trip in July of 1994, while visiting his family in Bellevue, Washington, Atif Rafay’s mother, father, and sister were all brutally murdered in their home. Investigators targeted Atif and his best friend, Sebastian Burns, because they were ‘acting strangely.’ Despite a corroborated alibi that both young men were not present during the killings, as well as extensive evidence of other parties’ involvement, Atif and Sebastian were convicted of murder.

    Wrongful Conviction with Jason Flom - Brendan Dassey Re-Release

    This is a re-release of an episode that originally aired on October 2, 2019.

    In 2006, 16 year old Wisconsin special education student Brendan Dassey gave a videotaped confession to the murder of a young woman named Teresa Halbach.  Brendan recanted his confession immediately, but was still convicted and sentenced to life in prison even though there was no evidence connecting him to the crime and the confession is widely recognized as false and coerced. In this episode, Laura Nirider, acclaimed attorney and host of Wrongful Conviction: False Confessions, arranges Brendan Dassey's only interview from behind bars with Jason Flom. Listen in as Laura and Jason dissect the false confession to the crime that is the subject of the Netflix hit Making a Murderer.

    Wrongful Conviction with Jason Flom - Eric Riddick

    Wrongful Conviction with Jason Flom - Eric Riddick

    On November 6th, 1991, William Catlett was shot and killed on a street corner in West Philadelphia. Nearly all eyewitnesses identified a man named Edward “P-nut” Johnson as the shooter. Instead of following those leads, investigators coerced a witness to blame Eric Riddick a childhood friend of Catlett. The witness recanted in 1999, but Riddick was not told about it until 2003, long after the 60 day window to introduce new evidence to his case had elapsed. It took the support of Meek Mill, Georgetown’s “Making an Exoneree,” and the election of Larry Krasner for justice to finally be served in May 2021.

I love, love this Podcast. Sometimes I feel like I shouldn’t listen to something negative in a way but when I hear the success and happy endings, makes me happy. It’s crazy how many corrupt CJ system can be. The host and most guest on this podcast are knowledgeable and explain it all well. Jason, it’s ok that you cuss, because I here that passion you have for all who were convicted and were innocent of the crime.

This is an awesome podcast ,

Great podcast, doing good work

This is a great podcast, doing good and necessary work to expose failures of our justice system. It also exposes people in that system who are trusted to uphold the law, and instead abuse that trust. We need these stories spread far and wide so that we can change things for the better. Thanks Jason, please keep going.
