March SDIS NEWSWrongful Convictions
Causes and Cures
For the last 20 years DNA technology has demonstrated that many people have been wrongfully convicted. For that same period of time, Innocence Projects around the country have been investigating why that occurs and litigating individual cases of wrongful conviction. These Innocence Projects have also been advancing legislation designed to avoid wrongful convictions and to remove the roadblocks to reversing those convictions. Professor Jan Stiglitz, Founder and former Co-Director of the California Innocence Project, will discuss his work on these issues.
