Not #Fake #News – Misleading forensics used in convictions – This time its in England

A brand new juried paper in @ScienceDirect on a 235 case metadata look at the evidentiary contents of “unsafe” convictions in Wales, and England. “Unsafe” is a Brit legal term that parallels “wrongful conviction” which is used in the US.

The authors’ compilation of multi-factors includes forensics and, besides having an exemplary list of references (many from the US), should be considered strikingly similar to prior efforts at compiling empirical  data on errors within Criminal Justice systems in the US and abroad.

Or, it may be just another part of the so-called conspiracy of criminal defense lawyers and LS profs who want to undermine public safety in order to reap millions of $$.

Wales and England

Here’s a short list of these prosecutorial-related naysayers producing Fake News that forensics is immune to faults, quacks, and fools.
