In 1995, a man a named Barry Jones was sentenced to death for a terrible crime: sexual assault and murder of a four-year-old girl named Rachel Gray. But, over the next nearly two decades, the legs holding up the case against Barry Jones started to wobble. In part two of our story, a team of federal public defenders fight to prove that Barry Jones should never have been convicted in the first place.
