Kite Line- November 23, 2018: Leon Benson in His Own Words, Part One

This post was originally published on this site

This week, we hear from Leon Benson, who calls us from inside an Indiana prison. You might remember some of Leon’s story from a Kite Line episode we aired in December of last year, called “You Can’t Force the State to Abide by the Law” in which his sister, Valerie, introduced Leon’s story. Leon’s been incarcerated for decades for a murder he says he did not commit, and is still navigating the prison system in an attempt to win his freedom. Now, Leon tells us about himself, talks about the ruling, being stonewalled by the Indiana prison court system- as he attempts to regain his freedom through PCR (Post-Conviction Relief) court.
