  1. That is really unfortunate. I think the commission was making great progress toward reducing number of wrongful convictions. Thanks for the update. Will share in twitter.

  2. Then Senator Sessions introduced at least one prosecutor during hearings concerning the 2009 NAS report on the state of forensics. The prosecutors that testified did not seem happy with the report. AG Sessions seems to be siding with the prosecutors in 2017.
