About Us

Imagine being wrongfully convicted for a crime you didn't commit, or imagine your child's killer is still on the loose even though there's enough evidence for an arrest. I want to help shine light on the injustices of our judicial system. I delve into court documents, attend trials, and interview those close to the case to help me tell their stories.

The Ominous Warning

New Years Eve 2014 - The Trials of Colleen McKernan

29-year-old Rob McKernan and his wife, 26-year-old Colleen McKernan, spent New Years Eve together in 2014. But by the end of the night, Colleen would call 911, telling the dispatcher that she had just killed her husband. Prosecutors say she killed him in a fit of drunken anger, but her attorneys claim it was self-defense after being in an abusive relationship for years. This case doesn’t come down to what the jury thinks, but whether the justice system worked. This episode was researched and written by Kathleen McWilliams.

10 Days (South Carolina v. Timothy Jones Jr.)

Justifiable Homicide or Murder?

In March 2018, police officers in Oskaloosa, Iowa, responded to a call of a fight in progress.

He made it seem like no big deal, but investigators would soon learn that one of the basketball players had been stabbed to death. At trial, the suspect claimed self-defense, but what would the evidence say?

A Son’s Denial

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.
