Its a pretty long read but the long and short of it is that a man spent 26 years in jail for a crime that two lawyers knew he didn't commit. They felt they couldn't reveal the truth because of attorney/client privilege. While I understand that attorney/client privilege is an impoortant concept, not imprisoning innocent people is an important concept also!
