Study: Over 2,000 Wrongful Convictions Since 1989
Wrongly convicted. Wrongly jailed. A new study says it happens more than you might think.
FOX News Radio’s Hank Weinbloom reports:
More than 2,000 people sent to prison for serious crimes since 1989 have been found to be innocent and set free. That’s the finding of a nationwide study done by the Law Schools at the University of Michigan and Northwestern University.
The reasons vary; witnesses who lie or just get information wrong, police corruption, and in many cases, people confessing to crimes they didn’t commit.
Researchers say they believe false convictions are even more common calling that 2,000 figure just the tip of the iceberg.
