"The Tyra Patterson Case, Part 3: The Tale of Tyra's Two Lawyers"  

Tyra Patterson has been in prison for 22 years for being involved in the murder of 15 year-old Michelle Lai.  And for every day for the last 22 years, Tyra has said she is innocent.  Decide for yourselves as Seema goes to Dayton, Ohio to reexamine this case through the eyes of witnesses, co-defendants, jurors, lawyers, and more.  In this episode two of Tyra's lawyers, Glen Dewar and Carl Goraleski, sit down with Seema to discuss Tyra's case including why Tyra's call to 911 wasn't played for the jury, why Tyra didn't testify at trial and whether Tyra was ever offered a plea deal.
