In 1980 Jim McCloskey decided to leave the corporate world and enter the ministry. While a student chaplain at the Trenton State Prison he met George De Los Santos, a prisoner serving a life sentence for murder. Convinced of his innocence, McCloskey took on De Los Santos’s case. His efforts led to Dos Los Santos’s exoneration and release from prison in 1983.
