Episode Summary

Burden of Innocence
In "Burden of Innocence," acclaimed FRONTLINE producer Ofra Bikel -- whose unparalleled work on America's criminal justice system has helped exonerate 11 individuals and has won numerous awards, most recently the Robert F. Kennedy Jr. award for last season's "An Ordinary Crime" -- tracks down these five exonerated men to learn how they have fared following their highly publicized releases. Her report examines the social, psychological, and economic challenges these men now face, the vast majority of them without any financial or transitional assistance from the states that imprisoned them.moreless
