Kevin Poulter in conversation with Lara Bazelon, author and restorative justice advocate
Original release date: 28 May 2019
“Imagine being wrongfully accused of a crime you didn’t commit. Being snatched from the life you know and sentenced for a lifetime. Knowing you’re innocent and having to fight with yourself and those arguing against you, every single day.
This isn’t a scenario from a Netflix crime series; this is real life for many.
In this episode of The Hearing, Kevin sits down with Lara Bazelon, author of ‘Rectify: The Power of Restorative Justice After Wrongful Conviction’; an attorney, law professor, and advocate for social, racial and gender justice.
During their conversation, Lara speaks candidly about her work defending those charged with the most serious crimes; faults with the US justice system; and how tough it can be to restore justice.”
