CLE - VIDEO ENCORE: Wrongful Convictions

This video-encore CLE presentation explores what happens when the basis for a conviction is called into question after trial and when both the prosecution and defense agree that someone is innocent. Panelists will answer the following questions: what is a "wrongful conviction;" how do the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office, Innocence Project and Defender Association, as attorneys for the wrongfully convicted, evaluate innocence claims; how is that challenge litigated; what are some of the challenges in that litigation from both sides; and what implications does this have for practicing attorneys and the criminal justice system?
