An ironic event occurred at the last meeting of the NCFS meeting in DC. Exoneree Keith Harward told them not to give up despite AG Sessions is taking all forensic science reform under his prosecutorial “wing.”

Harward had a large number of excellent reflections on what put him in a Virginia prison for 34 years and where we should go from here.
“When you present an expert to a jury of people, of course, whatever they say is true because the judge allows it, the prosecutor presents it. It has to be true,” he said.
“I’m sorry to hear that this commission is coming to a halt, because it sounds like y’all could be on my side.”
