Continue the compelling saga of Marcus Dixon in Part Two of our deep dive into a case that shook the foundations of Georgia's legal system. After being sentenced to a decade behind bars under a contentious law, Marcus Dixon, a once-celebrated high school football star, finds himself ensnared in a legal nightmare. Despite the jury's verdict that he did not participate in non-consensual activity with a teenage girl, the severity of the remaining charges — and their unintended consequences — have left both the jury and the public in disbelief. With the Georgia Supreme Court poised to determine Marcus's destiny, the nation watches, spurred by the influential voices of Oprah and Bryant Gumbel who have brought this injustice to the forefront of national consciousness.
