Scott Poggensee - Host

Scott has been interested in the American Criminal Justice system for as long as he can remember. He long had dreams of becoming an attorney, but growing up in the technology age took his life in other directions. Scott became interested in podcasting just recently, but is now a big fan of many True Crime podcasts. Some of his favorites are Serial, Truth and Justice, and True Crime Garage just to name a few. He really hopes that the cases he highlights will help raise awareness and free prisoners that are currently incarcerated for crimes they did not commit. After all, no one gets justice when the wrong person is jailed. Not the prisoner, not the community, and least of all the victims of the crime. “For the law holds, that it is better that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent suffer.” – Sir William Blackstone
