Michigan Innocence Clinic works to free those wrongfully convicted
Imagine being picked up by police for a crime you did not commit. You plead your innocence, but no one believes you.
Now imagine you're convicted and sentenced to prison for that crime.
For our What's Working series, Michigan Radio host Christina Shockley spoke with David Moran, the co-director of the Michigan Innocence Clinic.
