    On January 20, 1984, Earl Washington--defended for all of forty minutes by a lawyer who had never tried a death penalty case--was found guilty of rape and murder in the state of Virginia and sentenced to death. After nine years on death row, DNA testing cast doubt on his conviction and saved his life. However, he spent another eight years in prison before more sophisticated DNA technology proved his innocence and convicted the guilty man.

Reviews of Convicting the Innocent: Where Criminal Prosecutions Go Wrong

Overall customer rating: 5.000

Superb book!

by parothed on Mar 29, 2012

A suberb book. Well researched and documented, and a "must read" for all criminal defense attorneys, prosecutors, police officers and judges. The author summarizes the reasons for the irroneous criminal prosecutions over the past 30 years, listing the principal reasons behind the first 250 DNA exonerations. A valuable pre-trial research tool for defense attorneys. This book should be mandatory reading for all newly-hired prosecutors since their mandate is not merely to secure convictions, but to seek justice. I couldn't put it down, and after reading it I ordered 2 additional volumes to have as loaners to colleagues. A welcomed additional to the field of Criminal Justice.
