Ep. 39: Jeffrey Deskovic — 16 years in a maximum security prison…for a crime he didn’t commit

At the age of 17, Jeffrey Deskovic was wrongfully convicted of the brutal murder of a 15-year-old classmate. After hours of interrogation and intimidation by police and fearing for his life, Jeffrey finally confessed to the crime. Despite his confidence that he’d be quickly exonerated once all the evidence was in, he ended up serving 16 years in a men’s maximum-security prison. Jeffrey shares how he managed to survive that time and how that experience fuels his mission to free others who have been wrongfully accused.

You’ll hear:

  • What triggered suspicion that he committed this crime

  • How he ended up in prison, despite a lack of evidence

  • How he and another innocent inmate kept each other going

  • The incredible discovery that finally led to his release

  • How you can help in the fight for justice for those who shouldn’t be in prison
