What Happens After Exoneration

When a prisoner is exonerated, a wrong has been righted. Lara Bazelon joins us to talk about how these victories can actually lead to longer periods of despair for both the wrongfully convicted and the victim who can no longer claim justice. Bazelon’s new book is called “Rectify: The Power of Restorative Justice After Wrongful Conviction” (Beacon Press), and this conversation is part of the KERA series One Crisis Away: The Price of Prison.
