Ep 80: 32 Years – The Darrell Jones Case

On November 11, 1985, 43-year-old Guillermo Rodrigues was shot and killed in a restaurant parking lot in Brockton, Massachusetts. Police quickly zeroed in on 18-year-old Darrell Jones, who was adamant that he was innocent. In 1986, Darrell was convicted of murder and would spend the next 32 years in prison. In 2016, his conviction was vacated and he was released, but his nightmare was far from over when prosecutors decided to retry him.

In this episode, I speak with Lisa Kavanaugh, Darrell’s attorney with the Massachusetts Innocence Project.
