Summary:
Evan Zimmerman was accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend, and a jury found him guilty. But Zimmerman made it back to court after he was able to show that his initial lawyer was so ineffective he deserved a new trial. "Facing Life" captures the harrowing experience as the new trial unfolds. From the defense team's strategizing to the 11th-hour moves and the shattering conclusion, see how the tortuous process affected Zimmerman, who was nearly driven insane by the thought of going to prison again for a crime he said he did not commit. Zimmerman's attorneys were Keith Belzer of La Crosse and Keith Findley, a UW-Madison law professor. Zimmerman spent three years in prison before he was released on bond. Zimmerman is the fourth inmate freed through the efforts- of Findley's group, the Wisconsin Innocence Project, which operates out of the UW-Madison Law School.
