After Innocence: Jennifer Thompson & LaMonte Armstrong

Jennifer Thompson was a college student when she was raped. During the attack Jennifer tried to memorize what the man looked like so she could identify him later. Jennifer wrongly identified Ronald Cotton, and he served 11 years before he was exonerated.

Also, Lamonte Armstrong was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of his elderly next door neighbor. He was exonerated last summer and is still trying to negotiate life in a world he was removed from for years.
