Damon Thibodeaux on 48 Hours

I wrote a brief post back in 2012 about Damon Thibodeaux, a man on Louisiana's Death Row who served 15 years before being exonerated by DNA evidence. Just this weekend, CBS' 48 Hours devoted an episode titled Last Chance to Thibodeaux and the case involving the death of Crystal Champagne. I've embedded the video below, but if that doesn't work, you can check out the episode on the CBS News website.

You can learn more about Thibodeaux at He also recently testified in Congress about solitary confinement.

This really is a fascinating case, and fortunately, Damon is doing well today as a free man.
