Texas Wrongful Convictions

One, "Wretched's" take on Dallas and Texas wrongful convictions:

At least James Curtis Giles' name is going to be cleared. Dallas County's "good" name? Not so much. For those of you counting, that's thirteen exonerations in the last few years. More than anywhere else in the country. That's partially because the concept of justice has been a tad loosely applied in there here parts. It's also because Dallas, unlike many other jurisdictions, actually holds on to it's forensic evidence.
