Host Margot Patterson talks with Sean O’Brien of the Midwest Innocence Project and professor at the UMKC Law School.

The Midwest Innocence Project is dedicated to the investigation, litigation and exoneration of wrongfully convicted men and women in our six-state region.  Recent independent studies conservatively estimate that between 2% and 5% of all inmates in America were falsely convicted, with some estimates reaching up to 7%.  This means that somewhere between 2,000 and 7,000 moms, dads, sons and daughters in Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Arkansas are locked behind bars this very moment for crimes they did not commit.
