Juan Melendez - 6446

"Juan Meléndez - 6446" tells the incredible, true story of Juan Meléndez, who was sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit. A Puerto Rican migrant farmer raised in New York City, Meléndez was accused of murder in the state of Florida. While claiming his innocence, Juan Meléndez was convicted and put on death row for 17 years, 8 months and 1 day. Told by Meléndez, his mother, lawyers and friends, this personal drama illustrates the legal, political and public policy issues surrounding the application of the death penalty in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
