Clip: 12/05/2019 | 7m 29s
The exoneration of Ricky Kidd, a wrongly convicted man in Missouri who spent more than two decades in prison, highlights major problems with U.S. criminal justice. As covered in our Broken Justice podcast, Kidd was freed largely due to pro bono legal efforts. Kidd and attorney Sean O’Brien join Amna Nawaz to discuss the overburdened public defender system and how Kidd is turning anger to action.
