Hey there! I guess you may have seen, heard, or read that I spent 12 years in prison for crimes I did not commit? Well, it’s true. The only reason I am here now and able to share my story with you is because I never stopped fighting to prove my innocence. Eventually, I won and my convictions were overturned by the Court of Appeal in 2000. I was free...but changed forever. I knew, first hand, what injustice felt like, looked like and what prison can do to a human being. I am scarred by my life experience but I have not allowed it to hold me back.
I currently host Inside the Worlds Toughest Prisons on Netflix. Even with my experiences of life inside behind me, and my position as a free and innocent man confirmed, it has been one hell of a discovery. People ask me why go back into maximum security prisons, as an innocent man, after fighting for so many years to get out?
I am Raphael Rowe and my career was born as a result of spending 12 years in prison for crimes I did not commit.
