Paul Clark has spent the past 39 years incarcerated in New York prisons. He was 19 when he first went inside because he murdered a 17-year-old at an East Flatbush summer block party. A few years later, 25 years was added to his sentence for a crime he says he never committed. He's asked Governor Andrew Cuomo for clemency in 2019.
