Project Main Details

Wrongful Conviction 
ZD1728950
We are working on a documentary pilot in conjunction with the Innocence Project. The focus is on men and women who were wrongfully imprisoned, but who were ultimately exonerated. This episode tells the story of Keith Allen Harward, who spent 33 years in prison for crimes he did not commit. With the help of the Innocence Project, Keith was finally able to clear his name and was freed in April 2016. The project will feature interview clips with Keith, as well as voiceover to tie the piece together overall and drive the narrative of his case and his exoneration.

Script Details

Yes
N/A 
On September 19, 1982, Keith Allen Harward was convicted of rape and murder in Newport News, Virginia. He narrowly escaped the death penalty, and went on to serve 33 years in prison. He was released on April 8, 2016.

Keith was not released on parole. He was released because he was innocent of the crimes that had kept him incarcerated for over 3 decades.

How did an innocent man get sentenced to life in prison for crimes he did not commit?

Over the years, criminal investigations have changed, largely because technology and evidence have evolved. At the time of Keith’s case, the forensic evidence included hair collected from the victims and crime scene, saliva and seminal fluid. Though none of the hairs collected matched Keith’s even then, DNA testing was not yet available to exclude him definitively. The Innocence Project discovered that the chief piece of evidence used against Keith was actually bite mark analysis-- viewed as cutting edge science, at the time of Keith’s trial.
