Families Fighting For Freedom
Doreen and Yvette have never met, but they have a lot in common; both say their lives are consumed fighting for freedom in a broken justice system. Doreen’s son, John Giuca, and Yvette’s brother, Billie Allen, have spent half their lives in prison for crimes they say they did not commit. John was convicted of murder and sentenced to 25 years to life. Billie was convicted of murder and robbery and sentenced to death. Both women say they will stop at nothing to get their loved one out of prison. Doreen even went undercover and transformed herself from an everyday mother into a sexy blond 30-something in order to befriend a juror from John’s murder trial. Find out what she says she uncovered. John and Billie’s attorneys, Mark Bederow, Marty Tankleff, and Marc Howard, and “Wrongful Convictions” podcaster Jason Flom explain to Dr. Phil why there are flaws in our justice system that need changing. And, meet college graduate Jaye, who took part in a class called “Making an Exoneree.” She tells Dr. Phil what it was like to meet Billie in person.

9 Execution Dates, 3 Last Meals: Save Richard Glossip!
Richard Glossip was convicted of first-degree murder in 1998 for the beating death of his boss, Barry Van Treese. The conviction was based largely on the testimony of Justin Sneed, who admitted to killing Van Treese but claimed Glossip hired him to carry out the murder. Glossip’s case was featured on Dr. Phil in 2015. Then, in 2021, Dr. Phil interviewed Glossip from death row. Now, Dr. Phil learns the newest details of Glossip's case. On April 24, 2023, Oklahoma Attorney General Gentner Drummond wrote the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board respectfully urging to recommend clemency for Glossip. On May 5, 2023, 60-year-old Glossip was granted another stay of execution after the Supreme Court blocked his execution which was planned for May 18. Dr. Phil joins lawmakers, including Rep. Kevin McDugle and Rep. Justin Humphrey, Glossip's attorney, Don Knight, Sister Prejean, Glossip’s wife, Lea Glossip, and Oklahoma politician Justin Jackson, in Oklahoma City for a rally and press conference at the Oklahoma State Capitol to speak out against the state's conviction of Glossip. See Dr. Phil’s exclusive interview with Lea after she recently spoke to Robin McGraw. What did they share during the conversation “wife to wife?” What happens next for Glossip after this most recent stay of execution?
