The series — the first of its kind from NBC News — chronicles the case of New York State inmate Richard Rosario, who was convicted of a 1996 murder in New York City. Rosario has always insisted that he is innocent, and that 13 alibi witnesses will swear he was a thousand miles away in Florida while the crime was happening in New York.
Dateline producer Dan Slepian first heard about Rosario’s case while doing a story about a different inmate, and decided to look into it. Filmed over two years, the series documents Slepian’s investigation as it unfolded.
In “Conviction,” viewers will ride shotgun as Slepian digs deep into Rosario’s case in a quest for the truth.
