030 AFTER INNOCENCE

A story of misplaced justice and the perils of innocence.

Convicted and sentenced to 12 years in prison for aggravated sexual assault of a child, Greg Torti has spent the the last two decades in the shadow of a system that places a high priority on banishing sex offenders even after their release.

Living in rural Texas with children of his own now, Torti would be the first to tell you he agrees with the system.  Yet still, after years behind bars and now subject to the process a sex offender must go through each year, bitterness and anger remain after what he feels was no more than a vindictive accusation.

In this story Greg speaks on his upbringing in Irving, attempts on his life throughout his prison sentence, and the complexities of innocence.

ABOUT

Everything is Stories

EVERYTHING IS STORIES

An ongoing audio survey of individuals who have experienced transcendence and/or power of the will. No story will be considered too troubled, no atmosphere too strange.

Needed: tales from the underground, the underdog, the outlaw, and the outcast. Genuine characters of all kinds welcome.

Everything is Stories explores unconventional narratives of the past and present to preserve the eccentric, the authentic, and the personal.

Created by Garrett Crowe, Mike Martinez & Tyler Wray.
