"The Innocent Convicts": Audrey Edmunds (Trailer #2)

This is the second of several trailers and promotional reels for The Reporters Inc.'s upcoming new documentary about wrongful convictions in the U.S., "The Innocent Convicts." Trailer #2 focuses on the case of Audrey Edmunds. In October 1995, a seven-month-old girl died while in the care of this 34-year-old Waunakee, Wisconsin married mother of two. An autopsy revealed extensive brain damage and a pathologist determined the cause of death to be Shaken Baby Syndrome. Audrey, pregnant with her third child, was arrested, charged and convicted of first-degree reckless homicide. Never wavering once from her claims of innocence, it took nearly 11 years for Audrey to clear her name. With the help of the Wisconsin Innocence Project and new medical research that cast serious doubt on the legitimacy of Shaken Baby Syndrome, a court of appeals overturned her conviction in 2008. During her time behind bars, her husband divorced her, and she missed out on the childhoods of her three young daughters. Today, she continues to pick up the pieces of her life.
