After 24 years in prison, Evaristo Junior Salas still claims he was wrongfully convicted in a 1995 crime. Salas was 15 years old when he was arrested and charged for the murder of Jose Arreola. During his time in prison, Salas began visiting the law library and discovered findings that questioned the integrity of the case. Today, his family share stories about how Salas spent the next 15 years writing letters to lawyers and legal groups in hopes of finding someone willing to review his case.
