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.

Is This Really Happening? The Wrongful Conviction of Jeff Deskovic

In November 1989, 15-year-old Angela Correa was found murdered in a park in Peekskill, New York. Investigators quickly honed in on 16-year-old Jeff Deskovic, one of her high school classmates. Although the scientific evidence at the scene excluded him, he was ultimately convicted of her murder. This is Jeff’s story. NOTE: In some parts of the interview, you will hear a dog barking in the background - that’s my not-so-fierce dog, Porky, and I apologize for the inconvenience.
