Anthony Hinton: ‘I sat on death row for 28 years’ | UpFront

Anthony Hinton spent 28 years on death row in the United States after being falsely convicted of a double murder in the state of Alabama in 1985. He was finally released in 2015 and is now a community educator at the Equal Justice Initiative.

Hinton’s case is not an outlier; at least five percent of the prison population is wrongly convicted. This means that about one in every 20 judgements puts an innocent person behind bars – more often than not a person of colour.

On UpFront, Marc Lamont Hill is joined by advocate and author Anthony Hinton for a look at the flaws in the system that lead to thousands of wrongful convictions.
