Our Podcast Interview

Link to Podcast with ‘Just Us and a Broken Justice System ‘

May 23 2020: Tomorrow my first podcast interview with Just Us is scheduled. I’m incredibly nervous. The words I say have the potential to help my husband, that is a lot of pressure. I need to make sure I have a quiet place to speak as we are recording remotely and this presents a whole list of minor issues such as making sure I can talk freely and openly but also have quiet, which can be challenging living in a city apartment. I hope that I can do a good job speaking on behalf of Sean and shed light on his case and the injustices he has faced. I want so badly to share his story with others so they can hear a tiny part of the horror story he has lived for over 17 years.

May 24: Today is the day and I have spent hours prepping, going over the material and reviewing facts. I didn’t anticipate how my tendency to over prepare would make me this crazy about a short interview.

May 26: I feel like I did pretty good for my first shot! I didn’t get to hit every detail of course because the case is super complicated and there are so many details, people and such a mountain of evidence in our favor. But overall I am satisfied with what we recorded and how it came together. I feel like it’s a good jumping off place for someone who has never heard about the case. I wanted to inform listeners about Sean’s trial at age 16 as an innocent child who fully trusted the justice system to protect him who was terrified and then thrust into the department of corrections. Our wait of nearly 3 1/2 years for a ruling which is ridiculous and absurd and the people who failed and lied in his case who have yet to be called out.  Thank you to everyone who has listened to our interview, we appreciate your support. 

Thank you to Just Us for interviewing me and giving us this opportunity! 

About Sean & Emelia

Sean O'Brien was wrongfully convicted in adult court in El Dorado County, California and sentenced to Life Without Parole at the age of 16 without a shred of physical evidence tying him to the crime for which he was convicted. Sean and I have been friends since grade school and we were married in 2017. We live and grow together in love with the knowledge of his innocence, our faith, and hope for our future. We embrace this journey, wherever it may take us, cherishing each moment we have together and staying true to our hearts. This blog is about the past we share, our life together and our fight for justice. Thank you for reading. God bless.
