After Innocence: Scott Hornoff & Julie Baumer

This is one episode in our four-part series "After Innocence: Exoneration in America." Guests include Scott Hornoff, a Rhode Island police officer convicted of murder in 1996. Since his exoneration he has been unable to find work in this country so he has become a private security consultant in Afghanistan. Also: Julie Baumer, convicted of child abuse for what later was determined to be “shaken baby syndrome”. She was exonerated. And the man at the Innocence Project who receives thousands of letters from prisoners hoping to be freed.
