Journey to Justice

When Jarrett Adams was 17 years old, he was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to 28 years in prison. Fueled by his desire for justice, Adams set out to prove his innocence from within the prison law library, despite never having opened a legal textbook in his life. After enlisting the help of the Wisconsin Innocence Project, Adams was exonerated and his conviction was overturned, but not after he had already been incarcerated for nearly a decade. Yet his journey didn’t end there. Adams was determined to become a defense attorney himself, fighting to help others facing the same injustices.To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy
