Thaddeus Jimenez ("TJ") is the youngest person at the time of his arrest ever to be exonerated in Illinois and likely in all of the United States. In 1993, he was 13 years old and sentenced to 50 years as an adult for a crime he did not commit. TJ was exonerated on May 1, 2009 through the work of the Center on Wrongful Convictions. This short video features interviews with TJ's lawyers, as well as footage of him leaving prison and seeing his mother for the first time as a free man.
