Jed Dietrich, Esq. and His Team of Lawyers and Paralegals at the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. Fight to Obtain the Best Result for People Who Were Wrongfully Convicted of Crimes They Did Not Commit.

Scale and books America prides its justice system on suspects being innocent until proven guilty. Unfortunately, sometimes this system fails and an innocent person can be convicted and sent to prison for a crime they did not commit. There are far too many documented cases where the wrongfully convicted have been found to be completely innocent, only after spending years behind bars. Since 1989, there have been over 2,470 exonerations throughout the United States. Innocent people that have been exonerated have spent a combined excess of 21,725 years in prison. This not only has a detrimental impact on the innocent person in prison, but also adversely affects their family, who loses their loved one. Additionally, the victim of the crime does not receive proper justice, and the community remains unsafe because the true perpetrator is not incarcerated and still poses a danger to society.

Wrongful convictions only create more victims. Innocent people in prison are often permanently affected by traumatic prison experiences and egregious time spent away from family members and loved ones. Every minute a person erroneously spends in prison is irredeemable, as they will never be able to fully make up for lost time. In an alarming number of wrongful convictions, deliberate government misconduct played a fundamental role in obtaining the conviction. For those unfortunate enough to be incarcerated for a crime they did not commit, they may have a legal basis to seek compensation from the government. While there are various reasons why someone may be wrongfully convicted, no reason is good enough for allowing innocent victims to suffer and waste their lives away in prison.

What Is A Wrongful Conviction?

Prison bars An individual is considered to be wrongfully convicted when they are, in fact, innocent, yet they are convicted by a judge, jury or other court of law for a crime. A person is required to have been incarcerated and then be proven innocent of the crime that they were in prison for in order to file a wrongful conviction lawsuit. Reversals of convictions due to judicial errors or other technicalities are not sufficient.

The Innocence Project has shown that the principal causes of wrongful convictions include:

  1. Eyewitness misidentification;
  2. Poor training;
  3. Negligence and transgressions in forensic laboratories;
  4. The use of jailhouse snitches;
  5. False confessions;
  6. Inept or unsatisfactory defense attorneys;
  7. Police corruption; and
  8. Prosecutorial missteps or misconduct.

According to Sir William Blackstone, an English jurist and professor of law, it is better that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent suffers.
