Hearing today on DNA reforms in New York Assembly

Today in Albany, a New York Assembly committee heard testimony from Innocence Project Co-Director Peter Neufeld and three New York men exonerated after serving a total of 45 years in prison for crimes they didn’t commit.

Members of the Assembly are considering a new package of reforms that would help prevent wrongful convictions and use DNA to enhance the state’s criminal justice system. The Assembly reforms address these critical issues far more substantially and meaningfully than proposals that passed in the state Senate last week, according to the Innocence Project.
