It's a privilege to work on the same team with this guy

At 19 years old I was tried and convicted for murder even though I was innocent. The District Attorney wanted to sentence me to death. Thankfully, he eventually dropped the request to seek the death penalty and I was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.

I am so lucky that a possible execution was not in my future as I tried to prove to the world for 17 years that I was an innocent man. I am living proof that terrible mistakes can happen and that no system is perfect.
