No innocent person should spend a day in prison, let alone 18 years, because of intentional police and prosecutorial misconduct. King and Jones detail their experience of "fighting the good fight" for the Ford Heights Four, who were wrongfully convicted and imprisoned for a rape and double murder. They explain how to pursue, plead, and prove a civil action for wrongful conviction.
