KABC radio host, Doug McIntyre interviews Raymond Lee Jennings, a man who spent more than a decade in prison after being wrongfully convicted of murdering a young girl. Also interviewed, Jeffrey Ehrlich, Mr. Jenning’s defense attorney, who explains what went wrong that led to convicting an innocent man, and the legal process involved in the exoneration of Mr. Jennings.
A note on the recent NBC Dateline special on the Ray Jennings case: Dateline did a remarkable job of telling a complex story, which has so far spanned 16 years. They had a lot of ground to cover. As a result, they were unable to get into the details of our critique of the prosecution’s case against Ray. We hope that viewers of the program understand that there is much, much more evidence that demonstrates that Ray is innocent than what was presented on the show. We are optimistic that all the information will be made public by early 2017. When it is made public Michelle O’Keefe’s murder will remain a tragedy; but it will not remain a mystery.
