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.
