30 Years Innocent on Death Row


Anthony Ray Hinton spent 30 years on Death Row in Alabama, waiting for his turn to face the electric chair. At 29 years of age he was convicted of killing two white restaurant workers. The police officers who arrested him, the judge, prosecutor and jury who sentenced him were all white. As a poor, young black man, Anthony remembers he “didn’t stand a chance.” In 2015, after three decades behind bars, Anthony was set free. The state of Alabama has never apologized or compensated Anthony in any way. Our reporter Colm Flynn sat down with Mr. Hinton for this remarkable interview, and to hear how his faith now is stronger than ever.
