Welcome to court junkie
Imagine being wrongfully convicted for a crime you didn’t commit, or imagine your child’s killer is still on the loose even though you’re convinced that there’s enough evidence for an arrest.
Host Jillian Jalali created Court Junkie to help shine a light on the ways in which our criminal justice system works. By delving into criminal trials, court documents, and interviewing those close to the case, Jillian focuses on the facts of one true crime case per episode. In the end, the listener can decide – did the system work?
When you can’t get justice through the criminal court system, many people in the US turn to civil court. Our new podcast, CIVIL, covers a single case - from Alex Jones to OJ Simpson, to cases you’ve never heard before. Like a principal who hypnotized his students, and then three of them died. Or a teenager suspended from school because of a post on Snapchat.
