Two wrongfully convicted men are sharing their stories.

David Camm and Randy Steidl spoke at Indiana State University Wednesday afternoon.

Camm, a former Indiana state trooper, was wrongfully convicted for the shooting deaths of his family. Steidl spent years on death row after being wrongfully convicted for the deaths of a Paris, Illinois couple.

Steidl's conviction was later overturned and Camm was acquitted after a third trial.

Even though Camm was a state trooper, he says he was naive about the justice system.

"As many who are insiders, you believe things work as people believe, but that's simply not the case. There's a lot of injustice in our justice system. You deal a lot with arrogance and ego, and political ambition and personal gain," says Camm.

This was actually Camm's first public speaking appearance since his release in 2013.
