Off The Shelf - Wrongful Convictions

Show Details

This book examines the lessons learned from twenty-five years of using DNA to free innocent prisoners and identifies lingering challenges. About the Author Daniel S. Medwed's research revolves around the topic of wrongful convictions. His book, Prosecution Complex: America's Race to Convict and its Impact on the Innocent (2012), explores how even well-meaning prosecutors may contribute to wrongful convictions because of cognitive biases and an overly-deferential regime of legal and ethical rules. In 2013, he received the Robert D. Klein University Lectureship, which is awarded to a member of the faculty across Northeastern University, Massachusetts, who has obtained distinction in his or her field of study. He is also a Legal Analyst for WGBH News, Boston's local NPR and PBS affiliate.
