3: A Boy Enters And A Man Leaves

It’s a cruel sociological experiment. Lock up a 13-year-old boy for a murder that he swore he didn’t commit. Release him as a 30-year-old man. Then, give him $25 million. New from WBEZ Chicago, Motive is a true crime podcast hosted by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Frank Main, with original reporting from the Chicago Sun-Times.

T.J. Jimenez is charged with murder and prosecuted as an adult. We hear from Jimenez’ priest and a journalist who covered the 1994 trial.
