Double Jeopardy

Welcome to True Crime Cases with Lanie, the podcast that deepens into captivating criminal mysteries. Today’s episode explores the intriguing concept of double jeopardy, a fundamental principle in legal systems worldwide. Double jeopardy generally ensures that individuals cannot be retried for previously acquitted charges. However, as we’ll discover, this law has exceptions and complexities.

We examine real-life cases where suspects were initially found not guilty but later faced retrial, resulting in their eventual incarceration many years after the original crimes. Join us as we unravel the nuances surrounding double jeopardy laws and delve into the circumstances that led to these unexpected outcomes.

But before we begin, a content warning: This episode discusses sensitive topics, including the murder of children and the rape/sexual assault of a woman and a teenager. Please listen with caution.
