  1. Re: When expert testimony isn’t… Well written article by Henry Gass. I concur; “fix forensics before it gets to court”. Will contact you, Norman Reimer, Peter Neufeld, and Brandon Garrett.

  2. [Request: The Michigan victory needs it own page here where people can comment, not just a newspaper link.]Congratulations Marla Mitchell-Chicon and your WMU-Cooley Innocence Project team! Yes, it takes a village to free an innocent person, but it shouldn’t. With over 1,600 exonerees – innocent people condemned to decades in prison for crimes they did not commit – it’s time Michigan prosecutors and judges start digging into wrongful conviction cases of those languishing in prisons across the state and in the courts for years. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Study the data on the National Exoneration Registry to learn about the high percentage of officials misconduct in these cases.

    National Registry of Exonerations: 2014 was Record-breaking with 125 Exonerations in U.S. | Wrongful Convictions Blog 1/27/15

    “Exonerations in 2014 occurred in 27 states and included federal cases in the District of Columbia and elsewhere. States with the most exonerations (not an indication of the states with most wrongful convictions) were, in order: Texas, New York, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina, Louisiana, Maryland, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.”
