Part 5: Christopher Ochoa

In 1988, 22-year-old Christopher Ochoa was working at a pizza chain restaurant in Austin, Texas, when a tragic crime and a coerced false confession shattered his life and tore him from his family. Chris relates the harrowing events that led to his own wrongful conviction, and his forced implication of his coworker. Despite painfully dark moments in prison, Chris explains how compassion from others helped him endure -- and how finding his own compassion drove him to become an attorney and advocate.
