NRE: Dramatic increase seen in law enforcement-led exonerations
from The Crime Report
The number of cases in which police and prosecutors helped exonerate innocent defendants dramatically increased in 2012, according to a report released by the National Registry of Exonerations. Law enforcement authorities initiated or cooperated in more than half of the known exonerations last year: 34 out of 63 cases. It was the first time law enforcement contributed to the majority of exonerations in a year, according to the NRE.
