Junk Science in Our Criminal Justice System
Manage episode 352131567 series 1129035
Many of the forensic sciences featured in shows like the ‘Forensic Files’ have been debunked and are now considered to be ‘Junk Science’... but that doesn’t mean that the people convicted under them are suddenly free. The Innocence Project’s Chris Fabricant is a nationally acclaimed author and expert on the use of forensic science. He and our executive producer Laurence Colletti sit down to discuss “Junk Science” and how it sent many innocent people to prison for crimes they didn’t commit.
Chris Fabricant is the author of ‘Junk Science and the American Criminal Justice System’.
