Mr. Junkin talks about his book Bloodsworth: The True Story of the First Death Row Inmate Exonerated by DNA, published by Shannon Ravenel Books. The author told Kirk Bloodsworth’s story of being someone who matched the description of a rape and murder suspect and wound up serving nine years in a maximum security penitentiary as a result. He was exonerated through DNA testing finding the real murderer. Both men talked about the case as well as the Innocence Project, a non-profit legal clinic established by Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld at the Cardozo School of Law in New York City. They answered audience questions. close
