Continuing Efforts to Exonerate Jesse Friedman

Nickie Phillips

Jesse Friedman will be back in court this week arguing for the release of documents that he believes prove his innocence. The New York Times reports on the continuing efforts to exonerate Jesse Friedman:

From the beginning, the case was deeply flawed. The only evidence that Jesse and his father, Arnold, had abused anyone consisted of statements to the police by children and one of Jesse’s friends. Many of the statements were made after repeated or hourslong visits from detectives who would not leave until they heard what they wanted. None of the children had previously complained to anyone of any abuse.

In the following clip, Jesse Friedman and attorney Ron Kuby discuss Jesse's case and explain his innocence.
