New Website on Wrongful Convictions in the US and Abroad

Mark Godsey, Director of the Ohio Innocence Project and Professor of Law at the University of Cincinnati, has just launched a new blog today called the Wrongful Convictions Blog.

The web address is www.wrongfulconvictionsblog.org, or you can just click the link above.

The purposes of the blog are to (1) provide one place where you can go to get all the news and info about wrongful convictions, and (2) foster discussion, debate, and learning.  You will see that Mark has contributing editors from all over the world, and the tagline is:  “Addressing Wrongful Conviction and Actual Innocence Issues in an International Forum.” There is a place for comments and debate on each post.

If you are interested in following the blog for email updates, click “follow” in the lower right corner of your screen.

The blog will involve more than just news and links.  There will also be frequent commentaries/editorials on various topics, such as the commentaries up now about forensic odontologists attempting to validate their “science,” the state of junk science generally, reacting to prosecutorial misconduct, and conviction integrity units at prosecutor”s offices.

Congratulations to Mark and the other members of the Innocence Network team for getting this started! We encourage you to check it out.
