Due Process, winner of 25 New York and Mid-Atlantic Emmy Awards, is a unique production of Rutgers School of Law-Newark and the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.
The critically acclaimed weekly series on law and justice, launched in 1996 at New Jersey Network is in its 19th Season with the same cutting edge coverage that has marked its long tenure.
Social and Criminal Justice, Urban Issues, Civil Rights, National Security, Government and Politics, Race and Class, Public Policy - those are the elements of the Due Process beat.
Co-hosts for Due Process are Criminal Defense and Human Rights Attorney Raymond Brown and award-winning journalist Sandra King. Sandy also writes, reports and produces Due Process along with Co-Producer Tania Ivanova.
Innocent men and women convicted and imprisoned. The estimates range from 2 to 10 per cent of everyone locked up. In a country that puts millions behind bars, that's tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands, falsely imprisoned.
That stat is shocking, but the horror really sets in when you come face to face with the innocent people behind those numbers, and none more than David McCallum, who lost nearly two-thirds of his life to a crime he did not commit.
On this edition of Due Process, David's tragic story and its happy ending - long overdue. It took a virtual village of lawyers and supporters, including Rutgers Law Prof. Laura Cohen and the students in her Criminal and Youth Justice Clinic, to finally win his freedom.
