Meanwhile, the number of those wrongly convicted continues to grow:

Innnocent people continue to be released from prison after serving years behind bars for crimes they did not commit. Those who were wrongly convicted evidence something inherently wrong with our justice system. Most recently, Larry Leroy Peterson, a convicted killer from New Jersey, became yet another apparently innocent victim, exhonerated by DNA evidence. He left prison this past week after serving 16 years for a rape and murder the evidence would suggest he didn't commit. The state insist it will attempt to prosecute him again. Go figure.

You can read about his case on line. Here is a link to one story or you can google search his name. Larry Peterson
