Reason TV- Part 2 Kenneth Clair
When Prosecutors Withhold Information,
Innocent People Go To Prison—or Worse....
Reason TV- Part 3
What Does It Take To Get A Retrial?
Kenneth Clair speaks out in a live "Jail Interview" in Orange County Theo Lacy Jail. This interview was an exclusive "Reason TV" production.  
Exonerate Kenneth Clair: DNA Evidence Points to Someone Else.
On November 15, 1984, 5-year-old Jerrod Hessling witnessed the beating, rape, and stabbing death of his babysitter. When asked to describe the killer, he said, without hesitation, that it was a white male. Another child present during the murder saw a white man’s tattooed arm reach inside the house to open a sliding glass door.
Yet somehow, the lawyers in the case determined that Kenneth Clair, a dark-skinned African-American homeless man who had been squatting next door, was the killer. When Jerrod saw him on the witness stand and insisted they had the wrong man, the prosecution chalked it up to youth and trauma and pursued the death penalty for Kenneth Clair.

But that’s not the biggest bombshell in this case -- in 2008, forensic testing revealed that DNA found on the murder victim did not match Clair’s. DNA taken from a glove found at the scene also did not match. It matches another individual, but the Orange County District Attorney insists that “confidentiality is required” concerning this evidence, and for 7 years now, the identity of the person whose DNA does match the swab has remained a secret. The prosecution withheld exculputory evidence, produced a witness to place Clair at the "crime scene" by extorting her. It was imposible for the prosecution's star witness to have been at the crime scene, due to the fact that she was still in rehab after brain surgery.
