Is One Wrongful Conviction OK?

by Dick Mac

If a wrongly convicted prisoner is up for parole and is required to admit culpability and remorse, should he admit that for which he is not guilty?

In the 11 minute video linked below, an innocent convict decides, after twenty-plus years of incarceration and three denied paroles, to screw his integrity, the integrity that allowed him to retain his dignity, in hopes of being paroled.

He admitted culpability and remorse for a crime he did not commit, and was repeatedly denied parole. Eventually his former defense attorney came to his aid.

It's worth watching:

The Innocent Prisoner's Dilemma

Today, he is a convicted killer who has admitted to a crime he never committed.

But he is free.
