Making a new life after 20 years of false imprisonment


Franky Carrillo was just 16 when he was convicted of murder. He spent the next 20 years in prison in California for a crime he did not commit.

He was released after eyewitnesses admitted they had lied. He is now at university trying to start a new life and to build a relationship with the grown son he only saw as an infant.
