On today’s episode Shane Casey joins Felony Friday host John Odermatt. Casey reveals his ongoing battle to clear his name after being convicted of the most heinous of crimes, the sexual abuse of a child. He maintains that he is innocent.
Shane Casey served nearly a decade in prison for this crime that he claims never occurred. He took an Alford plea for a reduced charge, which allowed him to maintain his innocence. This plea also allowed him to get out of prison for time served and kept him off the sex offender registry. Shane wrestled with taking the plea, rather than going to trial for a fourth time, but ultimately family and friends convinced him to take the plea and to continue to fight from the outside and not while sitting in a prison cell. This is the first time Shane has shared his story and in order to make sure all bases are covered this will be a two-part episode.
