Center for the Global Study of Wrongful Conviction Launches International Innocence Blog

The newly-forming Center for the Global Study of Wrongful Conviction at the University of Cincinnati College of Law has launched a new blog, focused on wrongful conviction and actual innocence issues in an international context. We’ll be featuring a weekly roundup of international posts from the new site – look for them on Wednesdays in the future – and encourage you to watch the blog for their U.S. innocence news as well.

 

Highlights from the past week include:

unreliable DNA test results

in 412 criminal cases.

introduction of trial by jury

would lead to greater justice there.

exonerated by DNA testing in Japan

, and another may soon be as well.
