Journey to Justice: An Interview with Jeffrey Deskovic

In Episode 327

In 2006, Jeffrey Deskovic’s indictment charging him with the rape and murder of a high school classmate was dismissed on the grounds of actual innocence. Post conviction DNA testing proved his innocence.  It also identified the real killer.

When a classmate of 16-year old Jeffrey was found raped and murdered in a local park, he was upset.  The police said his behavior seemed odd. They were suspicious of him because he was late for school the day after the murder and he seemed “overly distraught” about the death of a girl who was not even a close friend.  Jeffrey was questioned at length and eventually manipulated into giving a false confession.

Since his release from prison, Jeffrey has earned his law degree and established the Jeffrey Deskovic Foundation for Justice, devoting his life to fighting wrongful convictions and helping those exonerated to reclaim their lives.

Join us at the quiet end for the story of Jeffrey Deskovic.  Dick was able to be in touch with Mr. Deskovic for an interview recently.  We hope you will find what he had to say as fascinating as we did.
