Our guests this morning on Our Community included Joe D'Ambrosio, an innocent man who went to prison at the tender age of 26 for a crime he did not commit. After 20 years in an Ohio prison, through a stroke of luck (or divine intervention, depending on who you ask), D'Ambrosio was able to meet Reverend Neil Kookoothe, whose education in Law and Nursing allowed him to percieve Joe's innocence and moved him to find a way to do something about it.
Two events in Anchorage this week highlight the journey, and share the story -
