Biography:

Tony Viola is the only person in America who proved his innocence at trial yet still went to jail. He was indicted three times and tried twice by a joint federal-state mortgage fraud task force -- once in federal court and once in state court -- on the exact same charges. When a whistleblower inside the prosecutor's office gave Tony evidence hidden before his first trial, he used it to win the second trial. Even though Tony proved his innocence after a six-week trial, he remained imprisoned until earlier this month when he was finally released.
