Innocence Project Urges Governor to Grant Prisoners Clemency

Three attorneys with The California Innocence Project who have been walking for the past 48 days, making their way from San Diego to Sacramento, arrived today at San Quentin State Prison. They stopped at San Quentin to visit one of their clients, Guy Miles, who has been in prison for 13 years for a crime the attorneys say he did not commit. The attorneys' "Innocence March" will end next week at the state capitol in Sacramento, where they will urge Governor Jerry brown to grant clemency to the 12 California prisoners who they say were wrongfully convicted. Sally Schilling reports from San Quentin.
