Wales This Week, 8pm Monday, June 4

Cardiff Law School is running Wales’ first Innocence Project.
The projects have made a major impact on the legal system in the United States – helping to overturn around 200 convictions, but they are still quite new here.
The projects investigate prisoner’s claims to be innocent.
They put law students on the case to see if they can find any fresh evidence which might take the case to appeal.
In all, 77 students in Cardiff are taking part in the project.
Some of them are looking at one particularly difficult and unusual case – the murder of Jason Williams, of Gowerton, in 2001.
Mr Williams’ friend Richard Davies is serving life for the murder. He denies he did it and Mr Williams’ body has never been found.
For the last few weeks the Wales This Week team has been following the students as they investigate what they believe might be a “vital piece of evidence”.
:: Wales This Week is on ITV Wales, at 8pm, on Monday, June 4.
