Getting it Right: A Multimedia Resource on Wrongful Convictions


The Innocence Project today launched a new multimedia resource on the central causes of wrongful convictions and proven reforms to prevent injustice. The new interactive widget, “Getting it Right,” is embeddable on any website and features videos, case studies and in-depth research on forensics, false confessions, eyewitness identification, informant testimony, defense representation and conduct by police and prosecutors.

The widget was produced in partnership with University of Virginia Law School Professor Brandon Garrett, whose 2011 book, “Convicting the Innocent,” has earned rave reviews and provides the most comprehensive analysis to date of the causes of wrongful convictions later overturned through DNA testing.
