#242 Jason Flom with Paul Cortez

On November 27, 2005, Catherine Woods was found viciously stabbed to death in her Upper Eastside apartment. At the time, her ex boyfriend David Haughn stayed on her couch while she was romantically involved with Paul Cortez. When David discovered this other man, he was jealous and upset, yet Haughn did not become the prime suspect despite damning evidence against him. A confluence of racism, a false media narrative, prosecutorial misconduct, and ineffective counsel sent Paul Cortez away for 25 to life.  To learn more and get involved, visit: http://freepaulcortez.com/ https://www.change.org/p/andrew-m-cuomo-help-paul-cortez-fight-for-justice-f8ba4a77-b0c8-4636-8f8a-aea03d5a374a https://www.facebook.com/Help-Free-Paul-Cortez-38461123952/  https://twitter.com/pcdf?lang=en  https://lavaforgood.com/with-jason-flom/ Wrongful Conviction is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co No1.
