Barry Scheck discusses wrongful convictions on NPR

Innocence Project Co-Director Barry Scheck, author Stuart Taylor and Oregon prosecutor Joshua Marquis joined National Public Radio’s Diane Rehm Show this morning to discuss prosecutorial misconduct and wrongful convictions.

Taylor, a National Journal columnist, is the co-author of a new book, Until Proven Innocent: Political Correctness and the Shameful Injustices of the Duke Lacrosse Rape Case, which is due to be released next week. The group discussed how prosecutorial misconduct and flawed eyewitness identification procedures have led to wrongful convictions that were later overturned with DNA testing.
