After spending three decades combined in prison, three men who were wrongfully convicted are finally exonerated. Their life mission now is to help those who are living through wrongful convictions in Texas. True Conviction takes us through surprising displays of corruption of justice and on the challenging journey of investigating decades-old cases, as Christopher, Steven, and Johnnie offer help to incarcerated men who hope that, one day, they too will be free again.

The passion, dedication, and relentless pursuit of justice shown by these three men drive True Conviction and enable them to take on others’ cases while still dealing with challenging situations in their own lives.
