June 5, 2014 - PRLog -- The NBC story begins, "Within the walls of Sing Sing, a convicted murderer has convinced a nun that there has been a terrible miscarriage of justice."

The NBC news team, led by Lester Holt, reports on the case of Eric Glisson, a Bronx resident who was wrongfully convicted of murder nearly 20 years ago. Glisson was an inmate in Sing Sing when in 2006 he met Joanna Chan, the Maryknoll nun who is Artistic Director of Yangtze Rep in New York City, through her work in the prison's theater program.

Imagine spending almost 20 years in prison for a crime you didn’t commit. Eric Glisson says it happened to him.Dateline’s cameras followed Eric Glisson as he fought to prove his innocence and expose a miscarriage of justice in New York City. Glisson's conviction has been overturned thanks to Sister Joanna (known in Sing Sing as "Grandma") and the efforts of lawyer Peter A. Cross, who has represented her theater company, and of Mr. Cross's assistant, Charmaine Chester.
