Description

Imagine being wrongfully convicted for a crime you didn't commit, or imagine your child's killer is still on the loose even though there's enough evidence for an arrest. I want to help shine light on the injustices of our judicial system. I delve into court documents, attend trials, and interview those close to the case to help me tell their stories.

Ep 117: The Alternative Suspects (Part 2)
01:26:59
In November 2010, a horrific murder took place in Tallahassee, Florida, at the home of a single mom and her three children. Prosecutors contend that one of the children’s fathers is the killer, but at his trial, his defense blames someone else - the Mexican cartel. Was the murder of Brandi Peters and her three children a crime of passion, or a cartel hit? In Part 2, I examine the Defense’s case. Would the jury vote to acquit or convict Henry Segura?

Ep 93: The Murder of Dan Markel (Part 2)
00:00
In July 2014, FSU law professor Dan Markel was shot and killed in the driveway of his home in Tallahassee, Florida. Investigators immediately suspected that the family of Dan’s ex-wife, Wendi Adelson, was behind the murder, but would they be able to prove it? After two years of investigation, three arrests were made in the case - Luis Rivera, Sigfredo Garcia, and Katherine Magbanua. The Prosecution’s theory is that the Adelson family hired Katherine, who was dating Wendi’s brother Charlie, to orchestrate the murder. Katherine then enlisted the help of the father of her children, Sigfredo, and his friend Luis. In September 2019, Sigfredo and Katherine went to trial for the murder, with Luis Rivera was the star witness against them. Would prosecutors be able to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt, or would the defenses of Sigfredo and Katherine prove that they were being railroaded?

29-year-old Rob McKernan and his wife, 26-year-old Colleen McKernan, spent New Years Eve together in 2014.

Ep 80: 32 Years - The Darrell Jones Case
00:55:55
On November 11, 1985, 43-year-old Guillermo Rodrigues was shot and killed in a restaurant parking lot in Brockton, Massachusetts. Police quickly zeroed in on 18-year-old Darrell Jones, who was adamant that he was innocent. In 1986, Darrell was convicted of murder and would spend the next 32 years in prison. In 2016, his conviction was vacated and he was released, but his nightmare was far from over when prosecutors decided to retry him. In this episode, I speak with Lisa Kavanaugh, Darrell’s attorney with the Massachusetts Innocence Project.

Ep 64: His Name Was Generro Sanchez
01:00:19

In December 2012, 18-year-old Jerrod Murray was arrested and charged with the murder of 18-year-old Generro Sanchez, a fellow college student. In a chilling interrogation, Jerrod matter-of-factly describes the murder and when asked if he has any remorse, he says no. But would the laws in Oklahoma make it easy for Jerrod to not face responsibility for what he did?

 

In the episode, I speak with Generro's mom, Jeana, who talks about what happened to her son, and what she and her family are still dealing with today.

 

UPDATE: An earlier version of this episode incorrectly stated that those who are found guilty with a mental defect would be sent to prison if they are ever deemed to not be a threat to society again. A later version clarifies this - After a defendant is found guilty with a mental defect, they are then sent to a maximum security hospital for the same amount of time as if he or she had been sentenced to a “regular prison.” From there, they are then transferred to a minimum security building while they are being considered for release. Thank you to listener Kevin for making me aware of this error.

You can follow Professor Dauber on Twitter @mldauber, and also follow their ongoing efforts to put violence against women on the ballots on Twitter @EnoughVoter. Their website should be up shortly, so be on the lookout for that at enoughisenoughvoter.org

Their website should be up shortly, so be on the lookout for that at enoughisenoughvoter.org.  Please consider supporting Court Junkie with as little as $3 a month via Patreon.com/CourtJunkie.

Ep 58: Emily Doe and the Stanford Rape Case
01:06:11

In January 2015, a call of an unconscious female came into the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s office in Palo Alto, California. Deputies responded to a fraternity house on the Stanford campus and found an unresponsive woman who had been sexually assaulted, lying on the ground outside, behind a dumpster. The suspect was a freshman at Stanford, and the trial and sentencing that followed would make national news.

 

I spoke with Professor Michele Dauber, a law professor at Stanford, for this episode. You can follow Professor Dauber on Twitter @mldauber.

 

For more information on what’s next for Professor Dauber’s campaign, please visit enoughisenoughvoter.org or follow them on Twitter @enoughvoter. The website is brand new and should be up this week or next.

Case Update: Kelly Cochran (Episode 34)
17:15
In Episode 34, I covered the case of Kelly Cochran, who was accused of murdering her former lover, Christopher Regan. At her trial, Kelly maintained her innocence and instead placed the blame for Christopher's death on her husband, Jason Cochran, who had mysteriously passed away before the case went to trial. In addition to Christopher's death, Kelly was charged with Jason's murder too. 
 
In this Case Update, I pick up where I left off in Episode 34 - after Kelly went on trial for Christopher's murder. I spoke with MJ Dulmage, an author who has close ties to the case, about Kelly's recent plea deal and sentencing for the death of her husband, Jason Cochran.  
 
For more info on MJ's book, please visit http://www.facebook.com/coldfromtheinside.
 
Reminder: I am currently on maternity leave and will be releasing the next regular episode towards the end of August 2018. Thank you for your patience!

In November 2006, a young pregnant mother was found dead in her home near Raleigh, North Carolina. Investigators immediately suspected her husband, who had a seemingly rock-solid alibi - he was hundreds of miles away on a business trip at the time of the murder. Or was he?

In Part 2, we finally hear Jason's side of the story - but is it enough to keep him out of prison?

Ep 49: Jennifer Mee - From Hiccup Girl to Accused Murderer
59:27

In 2007, 15-year-old Jennifer Mee gained national attention as the "Hiccup Girl," a teenager from Florida whose hiccups would not go away. Just a few years later, she would re-emerge after being charged with first-degree murder. 

Jennifer's trial was interesting because there was one thing all sides could agree on - Jennifer herself did not pull the trigger. So would the punishment fit the crime?

Ep 47: The Life and Death of Real Estate Agent Beverly Carter
01:06:22

In September 2014, 50-year-old real estate agent Beverly Carter went to meet a couple interested in purchasing a house she was showing, only to never be seen again. Her body was found days later and a man no one in her family knew was taken into custody.

In this episode, I speak with Beverly's son, Carl Carter Jr., about what this tragedy was like for his family, and how he was able to cope during a very contentious trial - with a defense that tried their best to smear his mother's name.

They tried to save her, but to no avail. Although Jessica didn't survive her injuries, could she have given a clue to the first responders? Quintin Tellis, a friend of Jessica's, would later go on trial for her murder - but did he really do it?

On November 18, 2010, a tragedy occurred at the Dunwoody Prep Daycare in Dunwoody, Georgia. A young father was gunned down after dropping off his 2-year-old son. The person who pulled the trigger was caught shortly thereafter, but was there a conspiracy behind the death? 

NOTE: DeKalb County in this instance should be pronounced "Dee-kab." Please excuse the instances in the episode where I pronounce it differently. :)

Ep: 29 The Death of Conrad Roy (Michelle Carter Trial)
01:45:45

At just 18 years old, Conrad Roy III tragically took his own life in July 2014. When police arrived at the scene, they found his cell phone, which would reveal some shocking text messages he had been exchanging with his alleged girlfriend at the time, 17-year-old Michelle Carter. Was Michelle encouraging him to commit suicide, and if so, could she be found legally responsible for his death?

A special thank you to Daniel Medwed from Northeastern University and Kelly Montemurro for her help with researching this case.  Follow Daniel on Twitter @DanielMedwed.

Ep 23: Charles Erickson and The Murder of Kent Heitholt
01:23:16

It’s a story that has been told numerous times before - On Halloween night in 2001, Kent Heitholt, a 48-year-old sports editor, was brutally murdered in the Columbia Tribune parking lot as he was leaving work. 

Ryan Ferguson and Charles Erickson were arrested years later and charged with murder, although none of the forensic evidence at the scene matched either of the men. The case would slowly fall apart, amid witness recantations, and accusations of corruption.

Ryan would eventually be released, but Charlie remains in prison. In this episode, I speak to Charlie and get his side of the story, along with updates in the case. Visit FreeCharlesErickson.com for more info.

19-year-old Kenia Monge disappeared after a night out with friends on April 1, 2011. As her family launched a desperate campaign to find her, her father met with the man who last saw her – a man who said he had tried giving her a ride home the night she went missing. From then on, her father knew they would never find her alive.

A special thank you to Tony and Maria Lee, Kenia's parents, for speaking with me about their daughter's case.

In the early morning hours of June 14, 2007, a 32-year-old man is found walking down the side of a frontage road off I-55 in Channahon, Illinois. He’s bleeding and seemingly in shock.

In this episode, I cover the trial of Christopher Vaughn, a husband and father accused of killing his wife and three children.
