Daniel Villegas: Exonerated After 20 years of Wrongful Imprisonment

We all love true crime stories, but beneath each headline is a real person, a real family, trying to survive.

At 16, this week’s guest, Daniel Villegas, was convicted of a crime he did not commit and spent the next 20 years in prison. He recounts the moments and people that impacted his journey to exoneration.

He opens up to us about the daily struggles he faces now that he’s out, the misconceptions people have and how he plans to help others like him. Listen and get involved!
