Anthony Dansberry has served nearly half of his life behind bars. Now, his fate might ride on something unpredictable: the gubernatorial election. On today’s show, we unpack the case, and we explore the human toll of detainment.
Our guests on the show are:
Jane Raley of the Center for Wrongful Convictions, lead counsel on the case, as well as
Susan Swanson (private investigator on the case) and
Margaret Soffin (attorney on the case).
We then speak to Juliana Stratton, the Executive Director of the Cook County Justice Advisory Council about the human costs of detainment in jails, specifically Cook County.
