ABA Innocence Committee Resolutions Passed

At its February, 2005 meeting the ABA House of Delegates adopted resolutions proposed by the ABA Ad Hoc Innocence Committee to Ensure the Integrity of the Criminal Process  on federal sentencing, ineffective defense counsel, informants and compensation for innocents.  In 2004, the ABA passed resolutions on eyewitness identification, investigation procedures, crime labs, standards for prosecutors and false confessions, approved in 2004.  The New York Court of Appeals (at p. 13 n.5) recently cited the ABA policy supporting recording of interrogations.
