Fact checking is a requirement.
As these two, just below, are actors in the production:
Sonny Jacobs was on death row for less than 4 years, not 17. She has not been exonerated. She pled guilty to second degree murder and those confessions and legal status remain, as they should. Case detailed below, at 1 & 2.
Peter Pringle states: "I came within 11 days of execution. I spent 20 years on death row and saw 53 of the people around me I knew executed. But I was never afraid to die," Pringle smiled. (From: https://www.expressandstar.com/news/crime/2016/03/02/from-death-row-to-wedding-vows-how-one-couple-found-love-after-life-staring-at-execution/#puVBF7pix06heIs3.99)
Such is, complete, utter nonsense.
Pringle was sentenced to death in 1980, spent 6 months on death row and the last execution in Ireland was Michael Manning, in 1954, Pringle was probably laughing at the reporter. See, also 3 Fact checking matters.
