Wrong Man Season 2: What Will Happen?
The second season will re-investigate the three cases of inmates are convicted from long. They claim that they were imprisoned for the crimes that they did not even do. The second season will have a six-episode queue. Also, two of the three cases will feature female prisoners.
First one will look through Vonda Smith, a grandmother, imprisoned for beating her 21-year-old daughter and dumping her on a remote country road. She did not even have any criminal record previously.
The second one will follow Patricia Rorrer, imprisoned since 1993. She was there for the murder of a young mother and her 16-week old son in Pennsylvania. She also claims that the DNA evidence that was used to send her away is actually junk science.
And the third one is Kenneth Clair, imprisoned for the inhuman torture and subsequent murder of a young babysitter in Santa Ana, California. There was a five-year-old child who was the only eyewitness to the crime. And according to her, a white man did it. Here, the irony flashes as Kenneth Clair is black. And also there has not been any forensic evidence against him, that connects him to the crime scene.
