Episode 32 – Wrongfully Convicted Man Opens Up About Exoneration After 15 Years Behind Bars
In 2003, Aaron Salter was convicted of murdering a 26-year-old man he had never met and was sentenced to life without parole. After fighting to prove his innocence for 15 years, Salter was exonerated in 2018 when the Wayne County Conviction Unit re-investigated the case and found Salter had been mistakenly identified by a witness.
Today, Salter is an activist on a mission to free others who have been wrongly convicted. He recently sat down with Mike and Kevin to tell his unbelievable story and how it’s inspired him to create his non-profit Innocence Maintained, an organization that works to free others who have been convicted of crimes they didn’t commit.
