At 17 year of age, Jerome Morgan was convicted of murder at a Sweet 16 party and sent to the Angola maximum-security prison in Louisiana, for the rest of his life. Twenty years later, two key witnesses recanted their testimonies saying they had been coerced into falsely identifying Morgan as the gunman. In 2014, Jerome was exonerated and released.
