While I’m Waiting – America, the land of the free?

Wrongful conviction isn’t an epidemic that is new to our country. But through DNA evidence we’re learning how prevalent it is. From the University of Miami Innocent Project: Florida has one of the highest rates for wrongful convictions in the nation. Since 1973, over 24 Florida death row prisoners have been exonerated through the use of DNA and other scientific practices not available at the time they were convicted. But lack of DNA is not the only reason for wrongful convictions, false confidence in eye witness identification, improper police procedures and ineffective counsel can all add to a wrongful conviction.
