In 1984, Jennifer Thompson misidentified the man who’d sexually assaulted her. For Ronald Cotton, it meant a decade in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. But the strangest part of the story occurred after the exoneration: he and Jennifer became supportive friends.
In this episode, we talk about the mental errors that break up relationships and lead to false convictions, as well as the two men whose research in this field couldn’t keep them together.
