The sensational 1974 murder of Las Vegas socialite Hilda Krause marked the beginning of a 45-year legal nightmare for Frank LaPena, who was twice convicted and served 25 years in prison for a crime that authorities finally admitted he did not commit. LaPena relates his harrowing and heartbreaking story, which reveals deep flaws in the justice system and the indomitable spirit of a man on a mission to prove his innocence.
