Horace Roberts was convicted of second degree murder of Terry Cheek, a co-worker with whom he was having an affair with. Nearly 2 decades later, modern DNA testing proved his innocence, and the DNA in fact belonged to her estranged husband and his nephew, who are now about to stand trial for her murder. It took 20 years for him to be exonerated. In Part 2 we examine Roberts' legal journey through 2 hung juries and a conviction to his first contact with the California Innocence Project and eventual exoneration.
