Abstract

Fueled by more than 2,000 exonerations of wrongfully convicted men and women, the "innocence revolution" is shaking the criminal justice system to its core. By gathering the leading research, law, and policy analysis into one volume, The Wrongful Convictions Reader explores the core contributing factors to wrongful convictions: false confessions, witness misidentifications, cognitive bias, junk science, police and prosecutorial misconduct, and ineffective assistance of counsel.
