The U.S. Department of Justice states that between 8-12 percent of all American prisoners are, in fact, innocent.
How many are presumed guilty because of:
 
  • EYEWITNESS MISIDENTIFICATION
  • UNRELIABLE/LIMITED SCIENCE
  • FALSE CONFESSIONS
  • INFORMATION/SNITCHES
  • FORENSIC SCIENCE MISCONDUCT
  • BAD LAWYERING
