Eddie Joe Lloyd was let out of prison last week after serving 17 years for a rape and murder he did not commit. Although he had confessed, DNA evidence proved he was innocent. Tavis Smiley talks about the case with Judge Greg Mathis, host of his own syndicated TV show, Barry Scheck, Lloyd's lawyer, and Jim Tierney, Maine's former attorney general.
