It is all too easy to dismiss the claims of a convicted or confessed murderer. After all, they were found guilty so they must have done it, right? If they were innocent, how could they have gone through the judicial system and still be convicted? The reality is that it happens more often than you might think.
The Washington Post, The New York Times, Huffington Post, NBC and many other mainstream media outlets have published articles or aired stories that chronicle case after case after case of innocent people left to rot in prison for crimes they did not commit, only to later be exonerated or cleared of all charges. Studies show that this is an escalating problem with more and more people being exonerated each year. (The National Registry of Exonerations)
Until it happens to you it sounds like the stuff of fiction, but for Marna Weber, this has been the nightmarish reality for over 17 years.
