State of California vs. Quintin Morris

State of California vs. Quintin Morris

In 1991, Quintin Morris was arrested for opening fire on a group of teenagers in Los Angeles. In 1994, he was convicted of three counts of first-degree attempted murder. Sonya and David interview his lawyer, Alissa Bjerkhoel of the Innocence Project, as well as Jim Tranium, a retired homicide detective from the Washington, D.C. police department, to understand the abuses of power in this case, including unjust eyewitness identification practices, and the legal technicalities that kept Quintin in prison for years, even after the real culprit confessed.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
