The Story of Harold Wilson: Convicted of Triple Murder, Sentenced to Die,

In a Democracy Now! broadcast exclusive, we spend the hour with Harold C. Wilson. Convicted of three murders in 1989, Wilson spent more than 17 years in prison, most of that time on death row. In 1999, Wilson's death sentence was overturned due to ineffective counsel. However, his murder convictions were not - and he remained on death row. Finally, on October 31st, 2005, Wilson's final trial began. DNA evidence was presented for the first time. On November 15th, he was acquitted of all charges and set free.

In an extended conversation, Wilson talks about his imprisonment, his trial, his soldier son, who is serving in Iraq, and his daughter, who is a prison guard in Arizona.

Many callers have inquired how they can help Harold Wilson. He can be contacted at haroldcwilson@gmail.com, and donations can be sent to Harold C. Wilson, PO Box 19709, Philadelphia, PA 19143
