The Exoneration Of Fred Lawrence And Paul Jenkins

In 1994, Fred Lawrence and Paul Jenkins were sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Donna Meagher in Montana. Twenty-three years later, their sentences have been vacated, and DNA evidence points to another man, already in prison.

Greg Hampikian

Lawrence and Jenkins owe their freedom to the efforts of the Montana Innocence Project, with DNA analysis from Greg Hampikian, director of the Idaho Innocence Project. Hampikian joined Idaho Matters in studio to share the story of the search for Donna Meagher's real killer.
