  • My name is Nicole Snow. My dad, Jamie Snow, was wrongfully convicted for murder when I was around four years old. My family and I have lived under the shadow of this for going on 13 years. We were raised without a father under the shadow of a convicted murderer in this small town. He didn't do it, and now the University of Chicago's Exoneration Project is representing him. We are still fighting to prove his innocence, but he still sits in prison. This is my story of being raised under this "black cloud" in a small town in Illinois. Thanks for listening.
