Wrongly Convicted Group Second Annual Review

Since the first annual review, a further 77 cases have been featured, bringing the featured total to 142 cases, and 39 cases have been adopted, bringing the adopted total to 51, and the overall total to 193. One case was featured then later removed from the featured list.

During the year there were 15 exonerations, bringing the total to 26,  two executions, and one death in prison, please see the Featured and Adopted Cast List for details.

Just two of the 26 exonerations to date have been after jury retrials, in May 2015 Stacey Hyde was acquitted and in March 2016 Cherelle Baldwin was acquitted, both self-defense cases.

In May, a petition was created calling for the reform of the AEDPA, please do sign it.

Many, many thanks to everyone who has proposed a case or participated in the voting and discussion, I hope in the coming year more victims of wrongful conviction will obtain justice!
