Episode Detail: The First to Be Free - A Current Affair

Nick Yarris, who was exonerated after spending 22 years on Death Row for a crime he says he didn't commit, describes his ordeal and how an arrest for a traffic violation reportedly led to his arrest for rape and murder. He also discusses how he viewed a chance article on DNA fingerprinting as his only hope for release. Also: a conversation with Yarris's wife, Karen Karbritz, about why she fell in love with him after attending one of his lectures about the death penalty in London.
