5: S3: The Innocents - Daniel Villegas
Friday, 11 December
Daniel Villegas tells Alex his tragic story of spending 18 years in prison for the shooting of two young men in El Paso - a crime he didn't commit. Daniel was forced to confess by detectives, and he was convicted of murder despite immediately recanting his confession. He tells Alex about his first few years in prison in which he was forced by prison guards to take part in “gladiatorial” fights with other inmates.
The Innocents is presented by Alex Hannaford and produced by Peter Sale.
