Brian Peixoto was wrongfully convicted in 1996 for the murder of his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son Christopher Affonso, Jr., and sentenced to life in prison in Massachusetts. Peixoto’s supporters state that the child died from injuries sustained during a fall, not from child abuse, and they have four nationally and internationally recognized medical experts that support their claims. New expert evidence proves Brian’s innocence.

Charles Farrar, was wrongly accused of abuse by his step-daughter when she was age 15, then at age 18 she recanted her story and admitted in a signed affidavit, then twice under oath at evidentiary hearings, that she’d lied.
The case made its way to the Court of Appeals which confirmed Judge Leopold’s decision, then to the Colorado Supreme Court which in 2009 narrowly upheld Charles’s conviction 4 to 3, with Judge Michael Bender authoring a sharp dissent as follows:
“The victim’s suspect initial testimony, when coupled with the lack of corroborative evidence in this case, demonstrates that the key witness’s recantation would probably bring about an acquittal. Thus, justice requires a new trial.”
