Flip My Life Episode 4: The Innocent

Season One

Sometimes our criminal justice system is inefficient. Sometimes it’s inequitable. And sometimes, it’s just wrong. But when it goes wrong, how do we make it right? Preparing the Flip My Life house for painting, Rick and Marybeth meet 52 year old Sherwood Brown when they hire him to powerwash the brick. He survives by doing odd jobs, following his release after decades on death row at one of Mississippi’s most notorious prisons. DNA testing proved him innocent, but now that he’s been released, is he free?
