Virginia CrimProf Richard Bonnie is quoted in and UK's Guardian Unlimited, commending VA Gov. Mark Warner, a potential 2008 presidential candidate, for ordering DNA testing in old criminal cases after five people were found to have wrongfully convicted and for commuting a death sentence to life without parole after discovering that the DNA evidence had been improperly destroyed.
