Wrongful Conviction: False Confessions - Season 2 Trailer

Imagine the nightmare of being interrogated until you admit guilt for a crime you didn’t commit. In its long-awaited second season, Wrongful Conviction: False Confessions examines this true crime phenomenon through the eyes of two of the globe’s leading experts on interrogations: Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin, renowned attorneys, co-directors of Northwestern University’s Center on Wrongful Convictions, and recognized figures from the smash hit Netflix docu-series Making a Murderer. Using their unparalleled, first hand experience, actual interrogation audio, and interviews with leading lawyers, experts, and formerly incarcerated people to tell twelve true stories of false confessions, Laura and Steve invite us onto the front lines along with them to learn not only why people confess to crimes they never committed, but also how the criminal justice system failed to prevent those injustices from turning into years of wrongful imprisonment.

Wrongful Conviction: Junk Science - Fingerprint Evidence

EJosh Dubin discusses Fingerprint Evidence with Mary Moriarty, Chief Public Defender of Hennepin County in Minnesota Contrary to what pop culture has ingrained in the American conscience, matching known fingerprints of a suspect to prints left at the scene of a crime is not an exact science. It’s entirely subjective. So how did fingerprints become so widely accepted and thought of as the gold standard, as fool proof evidence?

Wrongful Conviction: Junk Science - Footwear Comparison Evidence

EJosh Dubin speaks with Bill Osinski, journalist and author of “Guilty By Popular Demand.” Even when done correctly, impression analysis of evidence, like shoe prints and tire tracks, is purely subjective. Many experts recognize its limitations. But one so-called “expert” in particular pushed the limits of this forensic discipline to produce horrific outcomes.

Wrongful Conviction: Junk Science - Hair Microscopy Evidence

EJosh Dubin speaks with Vanessa Antoun, Senior Resource Counsel at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) to learn about Hair Microscopy Evidence. Even when examined under a microscope, the similarities that can be observed between two hairs are open to wide interpretation, there are no definitive traits that can prove with any scientific certainty that a suspect’s hair matches a hair found at a crime scene. Yet hair comparison analysis was still being used to falsely identify and convict innocent people up until the year 2000 and people are still incarcerated who were convicted based on this false evidence. So how did this evidence get admitted into courts in the first place?
