Wrongly convicted

Innocent people are charged, labeled criminals by the police using dubious interrogation methods, and the media are rashly bringing them to trial. The Real Crime special “Innocent - Wrongly Condemned” is dedicated to the nightmarish true stories in which people from all over the world and from all walks of life are accused of crimes that they did not commit. We take a detailed look at sloppy policing, expose corruption, provide false witnesses and reveal other flaws in the legal system that have put these people in custody or even on death row.
