Synopsis

Juan Corona was a farm labor contractor who was
accused, convicted, and sentenced to 25 life terms for the
murder and burial of at least 25 sometime farm labor victims.
Corona was convicted entirely on circumstantial evidence
and finally and publicly confessed to the crimes at his fifth
parole hearing over 40 years later. This is the true story of the
crimes, the inadequate investigation, the bungled prosecution
and defense in Corona’s first trial, his appeal, the second trial,
other possible confessions, speculation on motivation, and the
sheriff, the judge, the prosecuting attorneys, and the defense
attorneys in both trials.
