Veronica Jones was to have been a defense witness at Mumia’s trial, saying she saw two men flee the scene. With brutal intimidation and barbaric humiliation, police detectives forced Veronica to lie, by denying what she saw. This was critical to Mumia’s conviction. The courts ignored Veronica’s later attempts to set the record straight by courageously telling the truth. Valerie Jones presents this gripping and sometimes painful story of her sister, Veronica Jones.
