He spent 16 years in maximum security prisons in New York, until the real killer's DNA freed him. To this day, none of the police, prosecutors or medical examiners who concocted evidence to frame him, have been disciplined. Once released, Jeff earned a masters in criminal justice and launched The Jeffrey Deskovic Foundation for Justice, which exonerates the wrongly convicted, helps them reintegrate into society, and educates the public about wrongful convictions.
