Nathan Myers and Clifford Williams.

Two Jacksonville men endured 42 years of wrongful imprisonment for a murder they didn't commit. In early 2019, their exoneration captured national and international attention. Today, author Bruce Horovitz joined us to discuss his latest book, Justice Pursued: The Exoneration of Nathan Myers and Clifford Williams. The book meticulously examines the wrongful convictions of Myers and Williams, who were unfairly sentenced to life in prison in 1976 for the shooting death of Jeanette Williams in Jacksonville.
