Join WGBH and the New England Center for Investigative Reporting (NECIR) for a discussion on wrongful imprisonment. What does society owe the wrongfully imprisoned? How many other innocent people are serving time?
 
Hear from Victor Rosario of Lowell who was convicted for an arson that killed eight people in 1982. Rosario’s advocates questioned the evidence and, after investigative reporters shed light on his case, prosecutors abandoned efforts last month to keep him in prison— but not until he spent three decades there.
 
Join WGBH and the New England Center for Investigative Reporting  for a discussion with Rosario , the attorney who championed his case, and journalists who covered his and similar cases. This in-depth panel discussion features experts representing diverse viewpoints. Light reception to follow.
