wrongful conviction

A new book by Concord native Benjamin Rachlin, Ghost of the Innocent Man, tells a story of wrongful conviction and exoneration. We learn about the saga of Willie Grimes, imprisoned for 24 years for a rape he did not commit, and his legal fight for freedom.  Rachlin says it's one of many similar cases in recent years, thanks to expanded use of DNA evidence.  

GUEST:  Benjamin Rachlin, author of Ghost of the Innocent Man

Benjamin Rachlin will discuss Ghost of the Innocent Man at Gibson's Bookstore in Concord on Thursday, Sept. 7 at 5:30 p.m.
