Basketball player Maya Moore surprised the sports world and her fans when she announced that she would be taking a sabbatical to fight for justice for her friend Jonathan Irons, who is serving a 50-year prison sentence. In 1998, a jury found him guilty of burglary and assault with a deadly weapon, but Moore is certain that Irons is innocent. She joins Michel Martin to share Jonathan's story.
