In Part 2 we’re diving back into the harrowing tale of Steve Titus, a man wrongfully convicted of first-degree rape in Washington State. Following his arrest, he was taken aback to realize that the entire system seemed determined to see him imprisoned despite his pleas of innocence. It flew in the face of what many who are unacquainted assume about the criminal justice system. No system can be perfect, but as an innocent man, he felt certain that of his vindication in the ultimate fight for truth and justice. Despite initially favoring acquittal, once deliberation came to a close, the jury ultimately delivered a guilty verdict.

We’ll explore the faulty identification process – how a faulty photo lineup and deeply flawed identification led to Steve's conviction. We’ll also discuss the relentless efforts by award-winning investigative journalist Paul Henderson, and new defense attorney Jeff Jones to uncover the truth. Their committed efforts would reveal significant flaws in the prosecution's case, casting doubt on the integrity of the police investigation led by Detective Ron Parker. Discover the shocking inconsistencies in the evidence and the dubious actions of Detective Ron Parker that do far more than simply cast doubt on Titus’s guilt. Now that’s dedication! Without which – it’s very possible that the eventual discovery of the real perpetrator, Edward Lee King, may never have materialized.

This episode unpacks some of the systemic failures of the justice system. Our discussion attempts to center the toll exacted on not only Steve Titus – but also his loved ones. The consequences, both emotional and financial, were severe and deeply troubling, as was, sadly, the eventual vindication that came too late for a man who had already lost so much. Join us we unravel the intricate details of this case, highlighting the critical role that ethical professionals working within the law enforcement and journalistic fields can play in our communities, and the justice system. Don't miss this compelling episode jam-packed with Paul Henderson’s investigative efforts and discoveries, and a cursory glance at the real perpetrator, Edward Lee King, along with his connection to similar crimes.
