By conservative estimates, some 87,000 people in the United States are wrongfully imprisoned. Not only are the lives and families of innocent people being ruined, every taxpayer is absorbing the considerable expense of keeping these people behind bars. Meanwhile, the real criminals remain free. But what can be done? The University of Michigan Law School’s Innocence Clinic—the first of its kind at any American university—is addressing the problem. Will they succeed in their first–ever case?

“In 1989, Jonathan Fleming was convicted of a Brooklyn murder that from day one he insisted he did not commit. After nearly 25 years behind bars, Fleming is now a free man.

Fleming explained to HuffPost Live’s Alyona Minkovski that a recent reexamination of the case revealed two key pieces of evidence that led to his exoneration: one being a receipt and another being eyewitness testimony — both of which confirmed his alibi that he was in Florida, not Brooklyn, at the time of the murder.

While Fleming says that he isn’t bitter about his wrongful conviction, and is only focused on moving forward with his life, he still wants an apology.”* Steve Oh, Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show), Gina Grad (Gina Grad Show, Pretty Good Podcast) and Dave Rubin (The Rubin Report) break it down.

David Robinson has served 16 years of a life sentence for the murder of Sheila Box. But did he do it? Two witnesses have recanted, and another man confessed to the murder. As Robinson’s appeal has now reached the Missouri Supreme Court, Robinson continues his “Life Without” freedom, his family and … parole. Watch our exclusive investigative video series and examine the details of this perplexing case at semissourian.com/lifewithout.

What a disastrous case. Who knows how many innocent people have had their lives ruined for nothing through inconsistent and unfair, prejudiced systems. I just read about David’s fortunate release on the BBC. Wholeheartedly wishing him a joyful future. If I were in his shoes, I’d probably seek prosecution of any officials responsible – taking 18 years off a man’s life is unacceptable and irreparable. David, I trust you’ll be strong and do exceptionally well from now on. Best regards from Finland.

Monday was a long day for David Robinson’s family. They left Sikeston at 8 a.m., and were in Jefferson City when word came from the Missouri Attorney General’s Office that it was recommending dismissal of charges, effectively ending the state’s legal fight in Robinson’s exoneration. That’s where we begin Monday’s journey in the video posted below. For much more information, including a video documentary, please see www.semissourian.com/lifewithout
