Juan Melendez exonerated death row inmate

Karen James interviews Juan Melendez who spent 17 years on Florida’s death row for a 1983 murder to which another man had repeatedly confessed--evidence prosecutors withheld.  In 2002 Juan Melendez was exonerated and released from prison.  As long as the death penalty remains a part of the American justice system, innocent people will continue to be sentenced to death.  Juan shares his story of injustice, survival and hope.
