Righting Wrongful Convictions: A Discussion with Barry Scheck and Ken Thompson

Sep 22, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| $10.00

Join two champions of justice, Barry Scheck, co-founder and co-director of the Innocence Project, which applies DNA testing to exonerate wrongful convictions, and Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson, whose Conviction Review Unit, perhaps the largest in the country, is a national model. False confessions, eyewitness misidentification, improper forensics; these two men bring insight into the disturbing fissures in our criminal justice system.
