Wrongfully convicted man speaks at U of A

Posted: Updated:

He sat on death row for more than 17 years only to be let go after the courts realized they convicted the wrong man.

Now out of jail, Juan Melendez spoke at University of Arizona law school Monday.

He spent most of the 80's and 90's in the florida jail system for murder before a taped confession from the real killer surfaced. Regardless of his stance on the death penalty, he has a clear message for the students.
