Join us as we talk with superhero Gilbert King- the man who single handily is on a crusade to free innocent man Leo Schofield.
Who is Gilbert King?
Gilbert King is an American author and journalist. He is best known for his book “Devil in the Grove: Thurgood Marshall, the Groveland Boys, and the Dawn of a New America,” which won the Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction in 2013. The book focuses on the events surrounding a 1949 case in Florida involving four black men who were wrongfully accused of rape and the role that Thurgood Marshall played in their defense.
Gilbert King, the podcast host of Bone Valley, is focused on vindicating Leo Schofield, who was wrongfully convicted of murdering his wife Michelle over 30 years ago
How can an journalist help –Like Gilbert?
Investigative journalists play a crucial role in uncovering and exposing wrongful convictions. They do this by:
- Investigating and reporting on cases where there is evidence of wrongful convictions, such as flawed evidence, coerced or false testimony, or misconduct by law enforcement.
- Bringing attention to these cases and making them more visible to the public, which can lead to increased pressure on the criminal justice system to rectify the situation.
- Working with lawyers and other experts to uncover new evidence, re-examine old evidence, and bring to light previously unknown facts about the case.
- Providing a platform for individuals who have been wrongly convicted to tell their stories and raise awareness about the flaws in the criminal justice system.
Investigative journalism has been instrumental in helping to secure exonerations and bring justice to individuals who have been wrongfully convicted. It helps to keep the criminal justice system accountable and ensure that the rights of the accused are protected.
