What would you have done in Michael Morton’s position?

The story you’re tuning in to on today’s Katie is a tragedy on so many levels. Imagine you’re accused of a crime that you didn’t commit, the brutal murder of your spouse. Michael Morton was convicted and spent 25 years in prison for the murder of his wife — a crime that he was later exonerated of when DNA evidence proved his innocence. I cannot imagine the anguish he felt being wrongly accused, convicted and forced to leave his 3-year-old son behind. Today, both Michael and his son will join me to talk about the last 25 years starting with that fateful day when everything changed. Are you familiar with Michael Morton’s story? What would you have done in his position?
