Pulitzer-prize winning author, Bill Keller, argues that incarceration here in America is a shameful waste of lives and money. The former New York Times executive editor says prison rehabilitation has been neglected with only a handful of successful reentry programs for inmates. Join us as Host Eddie Robinson chats unguarded with the founding editor-in-chief of the Marshall Project, Bill Keller. The acclaimed author of “What's Prison For?” builds a compelling case that criminal justice reform must take place now and compares American caged prisons to their foreign counterparts, where corrections officers are considered therapists and social workers. Who or what is standing in the way of much-needed reform in this country? And can educational programming and therapeutic interventions really solve the problem?

True Crime Tuesday presents Deconstructing The Mind A Murderer Case w/ Alan R. Warren! Voices of True Crime: Volume 2 covers the Teresa Halbach murder case, made famous from Netflix's Making a Murderer documentary series that began airing in December 2015. The House of Mystery Radio Show interviewed several of the key players involved in the case: Ken Kratz, the prosecutor of both Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey, and Michael Griesbach, District Attorney for Manitowoc Country who, after Steven Avery was wrongfully convicted in his first trial brought the misconduct of the law enforcement to the state's attorney. For the defense, they spoke with Laura Nirider from the Innocence Project, an expert in false convictions. They also interviewed Shawn Rech, a filmmaker that set out to correct the record on this murder case and expose the inaccuracies in the Making a Murderer series by creating his own docuseries coming early 2023 titled Convicted. They also examine one of the major theories surrounding this murder case brought on by retired Detective John A. Cameron. Cameron wrote a book that is the center of a five-part A&E series suggesting that the crime was committed by someone who had nothing to do with any of the players involved in Making a Murderer. He asserts serial killer Edward Wayne Edwards committed the crime On today's show, Alan R. Warren reviews the case and some of the interviews of these people from the book, along with some of the  damning actions of the documentary filmmakers and overwhelming evidence that shows a different outcome than what you saw presented on Netflix!

For more than three and a half decades, the disappearance of 12-year-old Jonelle Matthews was a mystery – a riddle neither authorities nor her family members could solve. The residents of her cloistered Colorado hometown had scoured every inch of prairie. Jonelle's face had been on milk cartons nationwide. Even the President of the United States had appealed to the public for help. Still, every lead had fizzled. Every person of interest had turned out to be a dead end. Then, in 2019, Jonelle's remains were unearthed near the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. With the discovery came a troubling new question: Had the truth been hiding in plain sight the entire time? Was the man who couldn't stop obsessing over Jonelle's disappearance also the person who took her? From Campside Media and Wondery comes season two of SUSPECT. Former CNN reporter Ashley Fantz and executive producers Matthew Shaer and Eric Benson (Suspect, Over My Dead Body) dig into one of the most mind-bending cold cases in modern history, in an attempt to separate fact and fiction, compulsion from guilt, and true-crime fandom from a motive for murder.Hey Prime Members, you can binge all 6 episodes of SUSPECT: Vanished in the Snow ad-free on Amazon Music.

Criminal law (2022): Crimes against justice: Miscarriage of justice (Part One)

Law School

A miscarriage of justice occurs when a grossly unfair outcome occurs in a criminal or civil proceeding, such as the conviction and punishment of a person for a crime they did not commit. Miscarriages are also known as wrongful convictions. Innocent people have sometimes ended up in prison for years before their conviction has eventually been overturned. They may be exonerated if new evidence comes to light or it is determined that the police or prosecutor committed some kind of misconduct at the original trial. In some jurisdictions this leads to the payment of compensation. Academic studies have found that the main factors contributing to miscarriages of justice are: eyewitness misidentification; faulty forensic analysis; false confessions by vulnerable suspects; perjury and lies stated by witnesses; misconduct by police, prosecutors or judges; and or ineffective assistance of counsel (for example, inadequate defense strategies by the defendant's or respondent's legal team). Some prosecutors' offices undertake conviction integrity reviews to prevent, identify, and correct wrongful convictions. Prevalence. There are two main methods for estimating the prevalence of wrongful convictions. Exoneration. The first is the number of exonerations where the guilty verdict has been vacated or annulled by a judge or higher court after new evidence has been brought forward proving the 'guilty' person is, in fact, innocent. Since 1989, the Innocence Project has helped overturn 375 convictions of American prisoners with updated DNA evidence. However, DNA testing occurs in only 5 to 10% of all criminal cases, and exonerations achieved by the Innocence Project are limited to murder and rape cases. This raises the possibility that there may be many more wrongful convictions for which there is no evidence available to exonerate the defendant. Studies cited by the Innocence Project estimate that between 2.3% and 5% of all prisoners in the U.S. are innocent. However, a more recent study looking at convictions in the state of Virginia during the 1970s and 1980s and matching them to later DNA analysis estimates a rate of wrongful conviction at 11.6%. A 2014 study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences made a conservative estimate that 4.1% of inmates awaiting execution on death row in the United States are innocent. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/law-school/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/law-school/support

When there is strife, there is a supporting organization, and with them are lawyers. Wrongful convictions. Voting rights. Environmental protection. The rights of women, people of color, workers,  LGBTQ, immigrants, asylum seekers.  Lawyers are in a unique position to do something about all of this. And they do. And we hope more will.Join me as I interview nationally acclaimed trial consultant Tara Trask and music industry star-maker Jason Flom. Tara Trask is the President of Trask Consulting, a boutique litigation strategy, jury research and trial consulting firm.

Jason is personally responsible for launching acts such as Katy Perry and Greta Van Fleet, and discovering and developing the likes of Matchbox 20, The Corrs, Tory Amos, Jewel, and Stone Temple Pilots. The New Yorker described Jason as “one of the most successful record men of the past 20 years. He's also committed to doing good. Through his Lava for Good company, Jason hosts the hit podcast Wrongful Conviction, now in its ninth season, which features interviews with people who have spent decades in prison for crimes they did not commit. Within two weeks of its release, the podcast shot to #7 on the iTunes charts and has raised more than $1 million to benefit the Innocence Project. Lava for Good's Bone Valley, which tells the tragic story of  Leo Schofield, who was sentenced to life for the murder of his wife, Michelle, is also one of the top podcasts on iTunes (#19 as of this writing), and received a highly regarded "four thumbs up" from the Crime Writers On  podcast.
