Boggling the Mind

Just a short post today; there’s a great article in the Washington Post about wrongful convictions; here’s an excerpt:

“The average time served for the 1,625 exonerated individuals in the registry is more than nine years. Last year, three innocent murder defendants in Cleveland were exonerated 39 years after they were convicted — they spent their entire adult lives in prison — and even they were lucky: We know without doubt that the vast majority of innocent defendants who are convicted of crimes are never identified and cleared.

Check it out, it’s worth a read.
