Asad Kerr-Giles was a college-bound high-school senior when, in 2012, he left a party and overheard gunshots. He was picked up by police, and charged with the shooting. Twenty-eight months later, desensitized to violence by his confinement on Rikers Island, he finally faced a judge and won acquittal. He spoke about his time in jail with his mother, April Kerr, as part of the @StoryCorps Justice Project. Recorded in partnership with Friends of Island Academy. Listen here: http://bit.ly/2p2t7nu
