In 1975, Tyrone Werts was convicted of second-degree murder, as an accomplice, and sentenced to life in prison without parole. He spent 36 years at Graterford State Correctional Institution before his sentence was commuted in 2010 by then-Governor Ed Rendell. In part one of a two-part interview, WPSU’s Patty Satalia talks with Werts about his long road out of prison, about Pennsylvania's "life means life" policy, and about his thoughts on our criminal justice system.
