When you're scrolling through Netflix, one of the most popular categories that you'll see popping up on your homepage is True Crime.

There are now quite a few documentaries that focus on the lives of men and women who have committed serious crimes, with the films showing how they did it and their journey to prison.

However, not all of these documentaries are about criminals.

Some of them are about innocent people who have been wrongly accused of crimes and their fight for freedom.

On 2DayFM Breakfast this morning, Em talked to a man who knows this experience all too well.

Anthony Ray Hinton was charged with the murder of two restaurant workers in 1985 and spent 30 years on death row, before a supreme court unanimously overturned his conviction and he was released in 2015.

He has now released a book about his experience called The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life And Freedom On Death Row and Anthony called in this morning to chat to Em about the book and his experience as an innocent man on death row:

Anthony Ray Hinton's book The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life And Freedom On Death Row is available now through all good bookstores.
