Inside Wrongful Conviction Cases

by Scott Christianson

REVIEW - Prof. Jim Acker, University at Albany

“Scott Christianson’s searing account of wrongful convictions produced by the New York justice system—a dark tapestry woven of mistaken identifications, false confessions, and official dereliction and corruption, and ultimately unraveled by old-fashioned gum-shoe sleuthing, dazzling advances in science, and simple quirks of fate—leaves several haunting questions in its wake. How could the justice system have malfunctioned so badly? What can be done about it? And, most chillingly, how many others must inevitably suffer the loss of liberty and life through miscarriages of justice?”

--JAMES R. ACKER, Professor of Law & Criminal Justice, University at Albany
