Exoneration Roundup

Cuffs_10 In an appeal to a single judge of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, a 30 day sentence for making a false rape accusation was affirmed; conviction could have brought a 40 year sentence to the person falsely accused.  Story here.   A Bristish woman convicted of making a false rape accusation was sentenced to eight months. Canada has started an inquiry into the David Milgaard case; convicted of a murder 36 years ago, he was released in 1991 and cleared by DNA in 1997. Here's an anti-death penalty editorial from the Indianapolis Star, emphasizing the number of wrongful convictions and exonerations.  [Jack Chin]

Very respectfully,
