Luke Wirkkala’s life was turned upside down when a man he invited into his home to watch the Super Bowl brutally attacked him. Wirkkala dashed into his bedroom and retrieved a 12-gauge shotgun, blocking the hall to where his girlfriend and her two boys dreamed peacefully. The man charged him, forcing Wirkkala to take his life. While this might sound like a clear case of self-defense, a jury convicted Wirkkala and he spent eight years behind bars. Not until 2021 was he able to find justice.
